Fight fans at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany will be in for a treat on Saturday, June 13th, as two stellar welterweight matchups have been made official for the main card of UFC 99: Franklin vs Silva.

First up, Mike “Quick” Swick will look for his fourth straight win at 170 pounds when he battles Ben “Killa B” Saunders in what should be a fight to remember. Both are coming off devastating knockout wins last December, Swick stopping Jonathan Goulet in just 33 seconds, and Saunders using a ferocious assault of knees to dispatch Brandon Wolff in just one minute and 49 seconds.

And while Swick-Saunders certainly has knockout of the night potential, the same can be said for the showdown between “The Irish Hand Grenade”, Marcus Davis, and Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy. Fresh off his 69 second knockout of Rory Markham last month at UFC 95, Hardy hasn’t been shy about his desire to fight the veteran Davis, who scored a three round decision win over Chris Lytle in his last bout at UFC 93 in January. On June 13th, he’ll get his wish.

Also added to the UFC 99 card, which is headlined by the highly-anticipated bout between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva, is a lightweight contest featuring Germany’s Dennis Siver against Dale Hartt, and an all-European heavyweight matchup between Stefan Struve and Denis Stojnic.

Tickets for UFC 99 are on sale now.
