Featherweights Cub Swanson (12-2 MMA, 2-1 WEC) and Hiroyuki Takaya (9-5-1 MMA, 0-1 WEC) are set to meet on the undercard of "WEC 37: Torres vs. Tapia" according to a recent post on Swanson's MySpace site.

Headlined by a bantamweight title bout between champion Miguel Torres and undefeated contender Manny Tapia, WEC 37 takes place Dec. 3 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

The main card will be broadcast live on Versus.

Swanson last fought for the WEC in December 2007. Carrying an impressive 11-fight win streak into his WEC 31 bout, Swanson was stopped by Jens Pulver in just 35 seconds.

The 25-year-old has since registered a submission win against Donnie Walker in the International Fighting & Boxing League.

Takaya made his WEC debut in February, losing by knockout to top featherweight contender Leonard Garcia. The "Streetfight Bancho" sports a rather unimpressive record, but his losses have come to world-class competitors including Garcia, Andre Amade, Gesias "JZ" Cavalcante, Genki Sudo and Gilbert Melendez.

With the addition the "WEC 37: Torres vs. Tapia" card now includes:

* Champ Miguel Torres vs. Manny Tapia (for bantamweight title)
* Brian Bowles vs. Will Ribeiro
* Wagnney Fabiano vs. Akitoshi Tamura
* Cub Swanson vs. Hirouki Takaya
* Josh Grispi vs. Diego Nunes
