Suffice to say, it didn’t take Anderson Silva long to establish himself as the unquestioned king of the sport’s deepest division.

In less than four combined minutes, the fearsome Brazilian striker disposed of the iron-jawed Chris Leben and then violently removed the UFC middleweight championship from the clutches of pound-for-pound great Rich Franklin.

That is the type of UFC debut that has a way of sending willing and eager future opponents scurrying in search of easier fights. However, 185-pound contender Mike Swick wants to make it crystal clear that he does not fall into that group.

“I want to fight Anderson Silva for the title in my next fight,” he said without hesitation. “I don’t want any more elimination fights or tune-ups. I want Silva next.”

There is more of this article at UFC® : Ultimate Fighting Championship®

hahaha might as well sign his death certificate right now

Anything can happen in a championship fight. But looking at the two fight thru their respective careers, I take Silva by KO early and violently. Swick is open up the middle. Remember where you heard it first.

Perhaps I'm just wondering out loud here, but if the UFC plans to bring in someone to fight Silva (say a Lindland), then I'd think we're more likely to see Swick and Leben, with the winner facing Rich to see who gets another title shot.

I think that none of those three guys has a chance in hell at beating Anderson. Swick would get KTFO or submitted, assuming he could get Anderson to the ground without eating a knee, and Leben isn't smart enough to handle Silva's control striking and BJJ.

As for Franklin, he got handled.

I think that Lindland probably has a better chance than any of these guys. His wrestling is way more evolved and I think he might actually have a chance if he manages to take the fight to the ground, but so does Silva. But I don't Lindland will come back to the UFC, I think he's under contract with the IFL.

I don't know... I still have faith in David Loiseau. He seemed to have lost confidence after his loss and this was evident while fighting Swick in earlier rounds but if he (don't know if he ever will) regains his aggressiveness and confidence, he can be pretty serious opponent.

I would say, continue working with GSP... regains his belief in himself, have couple of dominating fights (where he actually lets his fists and elbows fly), I truly believe he can take the fight to Silva.

Can you grasp that? Leban and Franklin didn't land one punch on him.

Rich did get a punch in but that was the catylist that made anderson charge him and clinch... watch the fight again and see that he hit him causing him to shake his head then advance to the clinch. up until then rich did ok in avoiding the strikes... he should work on his clinch defense and taken this to the ground to neutralize Silva's strength in strikein... personally I think that silva is a monster but on any given night anyone can be beaten.. Ive seen too many fights that were completely one sided untin a submission changed it all... i saw anderson get put in an ankle lock as he was striking in Pride and lost the fight... so its not so far fetched....

For sure the guy is a hardass. And yeah sooner or later he will get submitted or K.O.'d but I don't think anybody is gonna make that happen anytime soon. But once he is put up against a grappler theres a better chance of him losing thats for sure.
