I agree. I think this is going to be a great fight with Burkman coming out on top. I am really glad they didn't give Swick an easy fight for his first fight at WW

I agree, if he really wants this fight on the floor he is more than capable of getting it there.

Swick just because he is more motivated than Burkman. Josh is a good fighter but that guy has a crappy work ethic.

Burkman really could be a lot better. He's talented, but the guy really does seem unmotivated at times. He also has a horrible nickname, but that's already known by everyone and their mother.

Swick's a scrappy guy, but I don't know, Burkman's strong and could keep Swick down.

I would say if Swick isn't in his own head like he seemed to be against Okami the strength shouldn't effect him to much.

I mean at the end of the fight when he realized he had to do something drastic and seemed to forget about the strength he turned the table on Okami (who is far stronger than Burkman) and looked good for the last 40 secs.
