I dunno this could be a good fight, Swick is a good fighter and Ben looked really good in his last fight. I dunno I like this matchup I think it will be a good scrap.

Very exciting match up. I was happy when I saw the thread title. I really enjoy watching Swick fight, but I think Saunders has a good chance for an upset victory. Going to be a good one though.

I think it's a very good point that has been made as far as... who else is he going to fight. I think this is a good move by the UFC. Sauders looked like a monster in his last fight, so if Swick comes in and dominates him... Swich will look even better.
I personally think, if Swick pulls this off, and AJ gets a win against someone like Lytle... they could easily bill Swick/Johnson as a co main event at a payperview.

Of course this is risky buiness because you have to assume both guys are going to win...

Swick should keep it at a distance and stay away from Saunders knees.

And if he wins this one he needs a contender.

Mike deserves someone that's higher up on the ladder of getting a title shot. Not that Ben Saunders is a bad fighter, but he's not at the level of Swick.

I thought AJ was with AKA as well. If so then, sad. The top of the WW aside from Alves and GSP is AKA. Crazy.

This fight is such Bullshit. Swick is 8-1 in the UFC 3-0 at WW. Let the guy get a contender. I guess he only has himself to blame since he won't face Kos or Fitch.

But Swick vs Saunders is fun. It's a tough fight for Swick just because Saunders is huge.

But Swick should keep him at a distance and pick him apart or put Ben on his back and outgrapple him.

I totally agree but who else can he fight no one else is available? Someone suggested AJ but and that would be sweet, but is he available?
