When Mike Swick fought Marcus Davis, Davis was on a 11 fight win streak. Goulet was on a 3 fight win streak. Ben Saunders was on a 7 fight win streak. Joe Riggs before that fight was 3-1 in his last 4 fights and that loss is against Matt Hughes and his win before the Swick fight was against Nick Diaz.
21 wins is impressive, or it is until you list the names - Paul Taylor, Jess Liaudin, Jason Tan, Pete Spratt, Shonie Carter, Forrest Petz, Mike Vaughn, Jason Hathaway, Doug Gordon, Craig Gunder, Andy Normington, Brandon Wolff, Ryan Thomas, Dan Barrera, Charles Blanchard, Kenny Stevens, Rick Delvecchio, Reggie Pena, Kuniyoshi Hironaka, Paul Georgieff, Dan Chambers.
I look at that list and I don't think "watch out GSP we got some badass title contenders coming around".
Marcus and Joe Riggs were serious contenders at that point in time. Mike Swick was actually supposed to lose to Riggs. Ben Saunders was also being thrown into the contender label.
But your knowledge on MMA probably doesnt go that far back. And you only know what you see on ShtDog.
Yeah I should really focus on the past and not the present. I mean presently I can't watch serious contenders Joe Riggs and Marcus Davis fight. And Ben Saunders...boy nothing says not a C-list fighter than Bellator prelims which is where he last fought....on the Bellator prelims.
And ACTUALLY my post was responding to YOUR question about why Damarques is on a UFC on Fox card And i gave you the proper response. I SAID ABSOLUTELY nothing about it being a step down or step up.
Didn't ask a question. It was a facetious statement in an ironic post.
And just because a fighter isnt number 1 doesnt mean he cant be my favorite. I like the way he fights. End of story.
Who said he had to be number 1? I'm just confused by your little hissy fit.
I really want Mike Swick to win and I am really excited to see him return.
There is also part of me that really wants to see Sideways sad
