Swick can't really complain about the opponents he gets with the whole AKA not fighting each other situation. He just has make a big enough impact in his fights to eventually find himself as the #1 contender.

I think Swick takes this, then if he can beat Rumble or the winner of Condit/Kampmann I think he gets the next shot after Alves.

I think Swick is going to win but won't be surprised if Saunders gives him a tough fight.

I think this will be an awesome fight even though I think at this point Swick should be edging towards a title. But yea, I'm ver impressed so far with all these UFC 99/100 matchups, can't wait.

Does Saunders have a reach advantage over Swick? That would definitely be interesting to see since Swick (probably) has always been the one to have the reach advantage.

I'll say it again... people rate Ben Saunders too much for his last fight! He barely beat Dan Barera! Just because he dismantled a can doesnt mean he's anywhere near ready for Swick's level!

I like this fight should be really exciting! I see Swick winning it but Saunders seems like a tough guy with decent skills. Swick doesn't really have many other people to fight so this makes sense to me, and honestly he hasn't beaten any top competition to put him in the title contention IMO.

Swick should get a higher ranked opponent for sure, but I still think Saunders is going to take this, going to be an exciting fight either way.

What a stud
