Swick performed really well and eeked out the win over Louaseau. I think Loaseau would've won if he had more confidence at the opening bell but a great show by Swick nontheless. I think he should get a title shot for sure

Also he should get a title shot! He beat the number 2 middleweight in the UFC! That's impressive!

Swicks the man!!! I think he would have finished the fight if he was'nt so nervous. He fought smart and won for sure. Theres was a couple occations where he probaly could have finished the fight but he stayed smart and avoided elbows. To bad he did'nt KO The Crow(not gonna spell his last name) but he still beat his ass and gave The Crow a small cut. The Crow did ok but Swicks a beast. He's underrated because he's a TUF guy IMO.

I like Swick and agree that he won the 1st and 2nd round, but come on. He was hardly impressive. His best punches were all blocked. The only reason he won was because he had a few take downs (which he did nothing with) and he was more agressive. Other than that he inflicted NO damage..... I wasn't impressed, especially when he was trashing David when he had nothing.

I think he won the first 2 rounds but... what the hell happend??????? He died in the third. I think he deserves the shot at the title but is not ready for it.

When did Swick have a chance to finish? Standing up Loiseau blocked all of his fluries. On the ground Swick gave him a baby cut next to his left eye, Loiseau was closer to finishing Swick in the third than Swick did the entire fight. Were we watching the same fight? Swick does NOT deserve a shot yet. Let him face the loser of the title match next month, then we'll see. If Swick gets the winner of Franklin vs. Silva then he might leave on a stretcher because he is not even close to being ready.

I dont think he has much of a chance at Rich or Silva right now. But hes a tough guy and theres not much more out there for title shots now, and a win over The Crow is good credentials.

That is QFT.

Swick did all the little things to win against Loiseau who was obviously gunshy after his fight with Franklin. If Loiseau was more aggressive like he usually is, or like he was in the third one, he definitely takes that fight.

Marquardt deserves a shot more because even if those fights went to a decision....they were against good competition. Swick basically escaped Loiseau and caught Joe Riggs with a head kick (who really isnt that good to begin with except his heavy hands).

If Swick went up against either Silva or Franklin at this point..it's never "impossible" to win, but he's stand a less than 10% chance against either one.

Has the Crow ever been KO'ed??? It seem hes a slow starter and can definitly take a punch, if it would have been a 5 rounder I think swick would have had much more trouble.... After the fight the Crow looked fine and Swick seemed gassed, anyway who else at middleweight is left to fight, I guess give em a title shot.

I think that the Crow and Swick should fight again. I hardly call that a convincing win. He was TOTALLY gassed in the third and kept looking at the clock. If he fights Franklin now he does not stand a chance. However, I think he deserves a shot before Silva does.

swick's win over the crow means two things;

1) the crow isn't as good as some of us all thought. he's on a streak of losses that means he needs to figure some stuff out before coming back to the octogon.

2) swick absolutely deserves a title shot!!!

The Crow can definietly fight better than he did last night, he is just going to have to figure out how to do that. Swick got it done, maybe he should fight Nate Marquardt first if Franklin wins against Silva then that should determine who the #1 contender is.

Swick probably will get a titile shot down the road, but the winner of TUF 4 gets a shot first and I don't think Swick will be able to beat the winner of that show, probably Pete Sell.

Same thing in WW with Diego, he has run through every one but will not get a shot until Hughes fights the winner of TUF 4 and GSP; if GSP wins, like I think he will, then there is the rubber match. Diego and Swick are both in terrible positions. This is exactly why fighters end up leaving the UFC.

i told you, im a swick nut hugger and i knew he would do it.....next up, UFC MW title fight
First Franklin takes on Anderson Silva than he'll fight the winner of TUF4. Its gonna take some time before he has the possibility of getting a title shot. That being said I have a feeling there gonna make Swick fight Leben next and from there he'll probably get a title shot. There probaly a little hesitant bout giving TUF guys title shots after the the complete detruction of Nate Quarry.I do think Swick deserves a title shot but I wouldnt mind watching him smash Leben.

new here

Hey guys,
I am new here, I could not wait to see who won last night. I had to work so I could not watch what was going on. I have been out of the loop for a while so I have a few questions. You guys seem like the guys who would know. What ever happend to Chuck "Ice Man" It was a long time ago but he had beat Tito Ortiz and took the belt? (I think) what happened with him. Matt Huges won but how. I see a ko in the third round but was in a big shot or did Penn just kind of quit? Sorry to be so out of touch guys, I feel like a noob...lol

i was very upset watching this fight... i really wish it was 5 rounds... cause swick would have been KO'd... ui admit he won the firts 2 rounds.. but he didnt do much at all i think Louiseau did more damage in the third round then Swick did in the first 2 rounds..

if this was a street fight i would have said the crow won.. but since its MMA swick got the W
