Returning fighters in 2011

I was just thinking about the UFC roster and it occured to me there are a lot of fighters who have been out and are due back at the start of 2011 which could shake up the divisions.
you got:

Swick - out since Feb (returning to 185)
Rumble Johnson - out since Nov 09 (possibly at 170 or 185)
Joe Stevenson - out since Feb (returning at 155)
Ben Rothwell - out since June (Returning at 265)
Nate Quarry - Out since March (returning at 185)
Luis Cane - Out Since June (returning at 205)

Quarry and Cane are legitimate Gatekeepers but the other 4 could have a real say in what goes on in there weight classes, but i'm having trouble placing someone who has been out for so long.
Where do you reckon these guys fit in to their divisions?

Why is Swick going back up to middleweight?

I'm excited to see how Swick does now that he's not fighting that medical issue anymore. That may be why he's moving up.

He was misdiagnosed with dyspepsia at first which made him drop down to Welterweight because he had trouble eating. He later found out that he just has really bad acid reflux

he had a mis-diognosed stomach condition which affected his nutrition. I guess it meant he just felt weak a lot?!

So because he no longer had a problem he's back to middleweight so that he doesn't have cut as much weight?

I'm not too sure why he is going back to be honest he just said he was. He did look a bit gaunt at 170 and he may feel his chin is worse at 170. Either that or wants to avoid fighting Kis and Fitch.

Well I could definately understand if he doesn't want to fight his teammates. Maybe he could do better at middleweight right now. Either way we'll have to find out!
