Swick does NOT deserve a shot yet. Let him face the loser of the title match next month, then we'll see. If Swick gets the winner of Franklin vs. Silva then he might leave on a stretcher because he is not even close to being ready.
That is QFT.
Swick did all the little things to win against Loiseau who was obviously gunshy after his fight with Franklin. If Loiseau was more aggressive like he usually is, or like he was in the third one, he definitely takes that fight.
Marquardt deserves a shot more because even if those fights went to a decision....they were against good competition. Swick basically escaped Loiseau and caught Joe Riggs with a head kick (who really isnt that good to begin with except his heavy hands).
If Swick went up against either Silva or Franklin at this point..it's never "impossible" to win, but he's stand a less than 10% chance against either one.
