A featherweight addition to the UFC on Fox 2 card in Chicago has been announced by the UFC, as George Roop will face Cub Swanson at the January 28th event:

Cub Swanson will take on the always-dangerous George Roop in the talent-packed featherweight division.
Although both men have looked impressive at times, neither has been able to string together consecutive wins since 2008. Roop, who competed on the eight season of The Ultimate Fighter, has competed as high as 155 lbs, and all the way down to 135 lbs, but seems to have found his niche at 145 lbs. Looking dangerous in knockout wins over Chan Sung Jung and Josh Grispi, Roop also seems to falter against opponents who are highly skilled in certain areas, getting oustruck by Mark Hominick and outgrappled by George Sotiropoulos. Nonetheless, Roop is looking to build off a close split decision loss to the highly-touted Hatsu Hioki at UFC 137.
