Japanese veteran Tatsuya Kawajiri confirmed news of his UFC signing himself via Twitter recently, as the 32-fight winner called out Cub Swanson.
“I want to fight with Cub Swanson,” Kawajiri posted. “He won the Hiroyuki Takaya in WEC. Takaya is my friend.”
Swanson (20-5) has posted a 5-1 UFC record since joining the promotion out of the WEC. Kawajiri is 32-7-2 and has competed in both PRIDE and DREAM.
There has been no official word on Kawajiri’s debut, but the planned Singapore UFC event in Januaray appears to be the most likely destination.
