Swick Matches Up With Silva Well
 
I was thinking that Swick would actually be a good fight for Silva. Both have Incredibly fast hands and great power. I think that both would want to bang and that Silva might want be a little more cautious coming in.

Rich comes from strange angles, Swick comes straight in with speed and power.

I do think Swick has the potential to surprise a lot of people, I said this right after the Franklin fight. The guy will have a good game plan, he's a landslide underdog so there is 0 pressure on him to win and he's extremely determined. He's been doing some very special things in the UFC lately. Check out the UFC website for a new article on him and his desire to fight Silva. Do I think he'll win ... NO ... but he will make a much better fight of it than Franklin

Does that mean that you think Swick would take Franklin?

I think Swick should fight Leben first before Silva, he didnt look brilliant against loiseau so will need to improve before fighting Silva.

Could swick take franklin...dont get me wrong swick is a bad man and trains hard!!!!!!! but im kinda convienced that Anderson is gonna be pretty dominate.....do you think that will be Andersons next fight i mena it kinda makes sense....Rich got tore up by him so i guess we will see

I don't know about that. I'm not saying that Anderson is not a better fighter, but I think that they do match up very well. I think it's a fight that will surprise most people.

No, I think Franklin would win against Swick .. but Franklin either came in with a bad game plan or was simply taken out of his game plan by a superior fighter in Silva. I just think Swick will have the benefit of understanding what Silva is a bit better and he won't have the same pressure on him as Franklin did ... really there was HUGE pressure on Rich. I really think fighters will develop good strategies against Silva ... he's still gonna be tough to beat but I don't think he'll be blowing through guys for long

What makes you think that either one of them will fight in the UFC???

They are on top of Pride right now and Pride pays out a lot more than UFC.
