As some of you had said this is no gimme for Swick and it is actually tough for me to call a good main event for UFN12.

Should be an excellent fight. Don't know who'll win, but one of these days Burkman is going to land one of those haymakers.

I really can't decide on who would win this. I hate Burkman, so I'm leaning toward Swick. But I still think the cut might give Mike some trouble. Hopefully, they'll both make weight easy and come in good shape and give us a good brawl.

Swick vs. Burkman should be a solid fight, but I expect nothing too exciting to come of it. Burkman, in my opinion, doesn't have a lot of flash but he's solid and hard to finish. Swick brings it, but has trouble finishing solid fighters. I expect Swick to carry this to a unanimous decision, probably 30-27.

Man O Man. I'm exicted. I mean I've been waiting for a long time to see my boy Swick fight again.

This should be a fun fight. I think Swick should win this one. I mean the Burkman isn't as strong as Okami and Swick almost beat Okami.

I think Swick KO's him in round 2. Man I'm exicted for this fight. I mean Swick vs Goulet would've been great just to see Swick fight again but Swick vs Burkman is actually a good fight.

Man I'm pumped up now.

He finished Riggs who is pretty solid, And messed up Okami before he Yushin got saved by the bell. Swick can really finish anyone it just a matter of if he hits his flurry at the right time.

Swick needs to get back that crazy aggresive style he was all about before the Okami fight. This fight should be pretty awesome, man I feel like Ive been looking forward to more fight nights then I have actual ppv's this year.

I know alot of people are worried about Swick cutting the weight. But he was only 205 on the show because he had no choice. He was constantly trying to convince Dana to let him fight at 185. I had also read that he doesnt cut to fight at 185. So it shouldnt be too hard at all.
