UFC Fight Night: Swanson vs. Lobov (also known as UFC Fight Night 108) was a mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship held on April 22, 2017, at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.[2]

Background[edit]

A featherweight bout between Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov headlined the event.[2]

A welterweight bout between former UFC Middleweight Championship challenger Demian Maia and Jorge Masvidal was initially targeted to headline this event.[3] However it was moved to UFC 211.[4]

At the weigh-ins, Marcos Rogério de Lima came in at 210 lbs, four pounds over the light heavyweight limit of 206 lbs. As a result, he was fined 30% of his purse, which will go to his opponent Ovince Saint Preux and the bout proceeded at a catchweight.[5]
