Does Mike Swick stand a Chance against Silva

We all know that Mike Swick wants to face Anderson Silva! That is understandable considering Silva is holding the middleweight title! But consider how Silva raped Chris Leban! When Swick fought Leban back in 2004 he got knocked out in the second round! So my question is did Mike Swick improve his game since 2004? Can he take Chris Leban now? And can he withstand Anderson Silva?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I like Swick but he couldn't do too much against Loiseau so I don't see him being able to do much to Silva either. I think Silva would KO him rather quickly. If Franklin and Leben both couldn't last 2 exchanges with Anderson then I don't see Swick doing much better......IMO!

I think Silva would win that fight, but any chance for Swick to win... off course he has a chance and should get it soon

Yeah, Swick would get man handled by Silva, but I definitely think that he could take Chris Leben.

he says its going to be an exciting fight because they both are aggressive. but when he was put in front of the crow he fought tactically. i think it would be the same with a fight with silva. he will study tape and try to avoid getting caught like rich did. so he might last longer, but i dont think he can beat anderson. i'd like to see swick just come out guns blazing like he used too and just see what happens

Yea Swick's been known for those fury of punches and KOing fast, but when you go back to the tapes and watch them again, you'll see that it wasn't all that great. Well not with the first guy he did it to anyway, that guy was just being a ***** and pretended to get KOed like Vernon White style. Then Gideon Ray was a pretty good one but the only real solid shot he landed was one he got him with when Gideon was on the ground, all the other ones just kinda surprised him.

I see Swick lasting 2 rounds before he gets KO. I think if he fights Leben now it would be an exciting fight with Swick getting the best of Leben.
