Swick has quick hands and I would love to see the fight. I am not saying he would win but it only takes one good punch.

I tell you what ive only been into MMA proper for about 2 years but the one thing i have learnt from watching it is that 1 + 1 doesnt always = 2!!

Have to say tho a good striker will on average get beat by either...

a) A better striker

or

b) A good ground guy who knows how to avoid getting hit.

Swick has been pretty dman good lately. He has backed up his moniker "swick the quick". He wasn't overly impressive in his last fight, but the competition was a step up. Was anyone else surprised by his Swickatine on Diesel Riggs?

I love Franklin, but it does look like he has a weak chin.

I think a swick sliva fight would be alot more even but I dont think swick will win.

I like the guy he's is a fantastic fighter who needs prob another year of dev time to truly come into this own. He is a star on the rise and really hope the UFC thinks of this before they just throw him at sliva. You dont want to ruin one of your best up and coming fighters.

Swick is gonna have a better game plan than Rich for sure!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No one in the MW division would last very long standing up with Anderson Silva...including Mike Swick. If he fight Silva next, i'm sure he'll live up to his nickname "Quick"...by getting his head knocked into next week in very quick fashion.

Not trying to be a di** or anything, but are you pretty new to MMA fighting?

Pride is a MUCH larger promoter and the purses are MUCH bigger.

Rich comes from strange angles, Swick comes straight in with speed and power.
his face matches up very well with silva's fist...

this could be a interesting fight
