This is another tough fight to call. I can honestly split this one right down the middle.

Swick probably has the advantage on the feet with his flurry of punches but Thiago is a black belt so he would have the upper hand on the ground.

I think Thiago can win this as long as he stays on the outside and doesn't get caught with one of Swick's combinations. We'll have to see how much the loss to Hardy has effected Swick, see if he has lost his confidence or if he comes in stronger than ever.

Thiago by unanimous decision.

I am taking Swick on this one. I think he definitely has the advantage on the feet and although I give the advantage on the ground to Thiago, Swick is no slouch ont he ground.

I just think Swick's striking is overrated. If you can stay away from that flurry of punches, technically he hasn't got much to offer.

Paulo Thiago looked good against Volkmann and we've seen against Koscheck he has KO power so there really isn't that much of a difference on the feet, imo.

I agree that Swick's striking is overrated. I can't believe swick is a 2:1 favourite. IMO, Swick hasn't really beaten anyone good except for maybe davis. I thing the biggest thing going for him in this fight is his reach.

I think thiago will make this a tough fight, I"m not sure if he'll win but I'm putting some money on thiago just cause of the odds.

Looking forward to this fight. I think Swick's fairly over-rated, but I'm still hoping he pulls out the win, I do like the guy (especially considering he replied to me on Twitter ). War Swick!

Swick has a point to prove after his loss to Hardy. I think he will catch Thiago with a fury of knees and then finish him with a tko..
