I wonder how losing the extra weight will effect Swick. Didn't he start out as a LHW in TUF? I hope Swick wins but Burkman has great wrestling and standup is getting good.

Smell that? bbjd just crapped his pants with excitement.

I dig this match-up, and Burkman could have strength on his side here, which could overwhelm Swick. Burkman definitely has the tools to defeat Swick, namely his strength and wrestling game. if he works on his conditioning, then I can see him getting the decision.

Agreed.
We also do not know how cutting is going to effect Swick yet.

Yep, and also, Burkman used to fight at 205.

Should be an interesting fight.

Swick to fight Burkman for WW debut?

Got this from mmamania.com

Quote:
Mike Swick is in talks to make his long-awaited welterweight debut against Josh Burkman at UFC Fight Night 12 on January 23, according to MMAmania.com (www.mmamania.com) sources.

No official bout agreements have been signed; however, the match up is more or less a “done deal” from what we hear.

We’re also getting word that the SpikeTV special will take place at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. That is also still being worked on but it seems likely — the venue is available on that Wednesday.

I’ve been on the road for the past two days, which is the reason for the lack of site updates today. I’m also about to board a plane and am using a kind stranger’s laptop to pass along the quick news.

More on this showdown and others tomorrow
