Mike Swick vs. Jonathan Goulet in the works for TUF 8 Finale

The UFC is in the process of putting together a welterweight battle between Mike Swick and Jonathan Goulet to be a featured bout during Spike TV’s live season finale for the eighth installment of “The Ultimate Fighter” on December 13.

Sources close to both fighters revealed the potential bout to FiveOuncesOfPain.com on Tuesday.

Bout agreements have yet to be presented but the matchup has been proposed to Goulet and Swick, who apparently have both expressed separate interest in taking the fight.

The two had been scheduled to fight last September at UFC Fight Night 11 until Swick had to pull out of the fight due to injury and was replaced by Dustin Hazelett. Despite taking the fight on short notice, Hazelett submitted Goulet at 1:14 of round 1 with an armbar.

Since the loss, Goulet has gone 3-0 with two of the wins having taken place inside of the Octagon. After taking a fight outside of the UFC, Goulet returned last December during the season finale for the sixth installment of TUF. Facing TUF 6 contestant Paul Georgieff, Goulet submitted him with a rear naked choke in round 1. He then fought in April during UFC 83 in Montreal, where he TKO’d Kuniyoshi Hironaka at 2:07 of round 2.

Swick had been announced as being scheduled to fight on Oct. 25 at UFC 90 in Rosemont, Ill by UFC President Dana White, who made the announcement during a promotional press conference. However, Swick would later contradict White and claimed a miscommunication had taken place, as he would not be ready to resume fighting until December after having undergone elbow surgery in July.

Swick, who rose to prominence during the debut season of “The Ultimate Fighter,” is 12-1 overall with a 7-1 lifetime record in the UFC. His one and only loss came as a middleweight against Yushin Okami in April of 2007 at UFC 69 in Houston. The loss prompted Swick to decide to move down to the welterweight limit of 170 pounds. Since making the move, he is 2-0 with wins over Josh Burkman at UFC Fight Night 12 and Marcus Davis at UFC 85.

These two were suppose to fight a while back and Swick had to pull out. Anyways I expect Swick to get back to his "Quick" ways against Goulet.

This is a throwdown. I hope they both stick to their base and stand and trade.

Man if they do, it'll be great to witness.

I hope Goulet wins cause I really dislike Swick now, but I don't see that happening. Although Legend, this could be the perfect opponent for Swick to get back to his old self.

I'm kind of surprised you guys are saying this is going to be a throwdown because from what I remember Goulet has a glass jaw and that isn't going to help him against Swick. I won't be surprised if this fight doesn't last a minute or two.

I dont see how this makes sense. He beat Burkman who is a tough gatekeeper at WW and then Davis who prior to the loss was right on the cusp of top ten. Now he is gonna fight Goulet? Doesnt make sense as far as getting closer to a title shot in my opinion. He should be fighting someone like Parisyan, Serra, or at the very least Hazelett.

Swick should make quick (no pun intended) of him. As stated above, Goulet has a glass chin and can't take a punch at all.

Swick can just blow on Goulet and KO him. Pretty easy win for the guy, as Goulet has a china chin.

If Goulet had Mark Hunt's beard, then he could really make some moves.
