i say give Swick to Silva first based on more UFC fights. I would also comment that Nate has been cut a raw deal by the UFC so far. The guy is a very good fighter, carrys himself well, speaks well and is experienced in and out of the UFC. He is a good size for 185 and has the tools.

He deserves a shot soon but if you figure at 185, you got Swick, TUF4 winner (Cote ?) and then Ace rematch - Nate would have to fight at least once more - Which is why he will face Dean Lister. Then that will clear the picture up for early next year.

Swick seems to be the most marketable guy right now. If Marquardt can beat Lister then his stock should rise. Franklin is gonna be out for a while and the entire picture will change by the time he is ready to throw down again.

I think Nate is extremely underrated, I mean most people dont even know who he is, but as the UFC website says, he is a world class striker, well conditioned, has great size and he is a BJJ black belt. For people who dont know his credentials:

Blackbelt Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
2nd deg blackbelt Pancrase MMA/Jiu-Jitsu.
7 times King of Pancrase
1st middleweight King of Pancrase
Pancrase 2002 Spirit Tour Champion,
Pancrase Trans Tournament Champion
Bas Rutten Invitational Middleweight Tournament Champion
Ring of Fire Middleweight Champion
I.M.A. Rumble in the Rockies Tournament Champion

Thats pretty serious. I just think he hasnt fought any really tough opponents that are very well known. Personally, I think he could really give anyone in the MW division a VERY difficult fight, even Silva.

Either way, Dean Lister is one of my favorite fighters but I think since Nate has him in the stand up and the fact that he is a BJJ BB, he will win this one.
