Cub Swanson will face Shane Burgos in a featherweight bout at UFC Ottawa on May 4.

Promotion officials announced the matchup on Wednesday. UFC Fight Night 150 takes place at Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and is headlined by a lightweight tilt between Al Iaquinta and Donald Cerrone. The card will stream on ESPN+.

Swanson will attempt to halt a three-fight losing streak in his showdown with Burgos. The Palm Springs, Calif., native has dropped successive bouts to Brian Ortega, Frankie Edgar and Renato Carneiro in his last three Octagon appearances. Prior to that, Swanson had reeled off a four-bout UFC winning streak April 2016 to April 2017.

Burgos, meanwhile, has been victorious in four of his five UFC appearances. Most recently, the Team Tiger Schulmann representative submitted Kurt Holobaugh in the opening stanza at UFC 230 on Nov. 3.
