Swick is a stand up fighter, Silva is the best middleweight stand up in the world. He would demolish Swick, end of story.

I love it when people say... End of story.

If it is so certain, why do they fight at all? Lets just take a look at who is the better fighter on paper, talley their strengths and weaknesses and then just pick a winner. Then we can have a PPV where we all either cheer or boo the number nerd that calculated it up. Sound good to you?

Me either, lets just let them fight.

Yes we should wait and see but look at the facts.

1. We all know Anderson Silva has the best stand up out of any middleweight in the UFC, Mike Swick is a stand up, has some submissions but mostly a stand up striker.

2. Anderson Silva beat Chris Leben to death who has defeated Mike Swick, although Mike Swick is much improved.

But like you said, wait and see.

Swick does have fast hands but its not enough to take out Silva. Swick would get cought by a submission or knees after Silva takes him down.

I just want to see a great fight, and like you said Swick has improved since fighting Leban. I don't think that Leban had really improved, he was a strong puncher with a great chin. He didn't have any reason to improve up until Anderson.

What I find funny is everyone thinks that the Muy Thai Clinch will be "the thing" to get around. I really dont think that is what would bring down Mike Swick. That is Swick's thing as well. Ok he might not be as good at it yet as Sliva but if you look at his body type and Sliva's they match up well. Both have very long reach and long legs. Being the Swick is a Muy Thai fighter I really have a hard time believeing that he would go down due to the clinch, its not going to happen that way.

Would swick win? Maybe. Lets face it Swick is mowing through people in the MWD. His hands are very very very fast. The biggest thing swick has going for him is that he has the long reach to stay away from the clinch. He has a very good ground game. Can he out strike Sliva? Well maybe again.

Go back and watch some more of his fights. He is far from a stupid fighter. I went back and watched 2 more of his fights. Against Joe Riggs and Louseiau. He dummied them.

I dont think we are giving him enough credit to be honest. His submissions are great, his striking is very good. And he is not a dumb fighter. When he wobbled rigs with the head kick he didnt pound away on him trying to knock him out, he went and choked him out. That shows smarts.

I still dont want Swick to fight him yet. I would much rather see Lindland do that right now and swick fight at least one more time. That kid has a bucket load of talent they just need to refine it a bit more.

yeah... good job helping prove that point.....

Swick is a Muay Thai fighter seeing as how he trained in Thailand and all at any camp he could get in. He has been in some sort of training most of his life, battled a heart condition, trained his guts out, has no pressure since he will be the underdog, and wanted/earned this fight. Dana needs to just let it happen!(unless he gets Lindland on a multifight/year deal)
