Swanson vs Takaya at WEC 37

Both fighters suffered losses when they last saw action in the WEC and will look to get back into the winning column. Swanson comes off a submission victory over Donnie Walker at International Fighting & Boxing League: Fight Night 11. His last action in the WEC was a quick submission loss to former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver at WEC 31. In his last outing, Takaya suffered a stoppage loss to Leonard Garcia at WEC 32.

These two were originally scheduled to meet at WEC 35 but an injury to Swanson forced both fighters off the card, as a suitable replacement couldn’t be found to fight Takaya.

Now Swanson is healthy and these two fighters will finally clash in the cage. A loss for either fighter could be bleak for their WEC future, especially in the competitive featherweight division.

I will go with Takaya on this one.

I like the fight, hopefully Takaya gets his first win in the WEC here.


Part 1, 2 and 3 of Takaya's fight with Antonio Carvalho "Pato" Real nice fight and Takaya's most impressive performance. For anyone who hasn't seen it, worth a watch.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..
