Swick Wastes No Time: “I want Silva next!”


UFC 55 Poster


By Michael DiSanto

Suffice to say, it didn’t take Anderson Silva long to establish himself as the unquestioned king of the sport’s deepest division.

In less than four combined minutes, the fearsome Brazilian striker disposed of the iron-jawed Chris Leben and then violently removed the UFC middleweight championship from the clutches of pound-for-pound great Rich Franklin.

That is the type of UFC debut that has a way of sending willing and eager future opponents scurrying in search of easier fights. However, 185-pound contender Mike Swick wants to make it crystal clear that he does not fall into that group.

“I want to fight Anderson Silva for the title in my next fight,” he said without hesitation. “I don’t want any more elimination fights or tune-ups. I want Silva next.”

Yeah, I guess if he wants it, and is going to talk all the smack, let them go...
I would like to see Silva start a reign of terror that holds for a LONG time. I don't like watching the belt change hands every fight. I want to see someone earn the right to be champ every time they get in the ring.

I know that I've said this before, but I hate when people put "end of story".

Why not have just a nice little blog that we can all log into and read what you have to say instead of actually having a forum where every one can KEEP THE STORY GOING?

To be honest it just makes you look like a closed minded person that can only believe that what they think is right, will happen.

Lets just let them fight and see if you are right (and yes the odds are WAY in your favor). And if you look at what I wrote, I want Silva to win. I want him to crush with an iron fist. Not just Swick but several more to come.

everyone is sleeping on swick. i mean he had 5 straight ufc wins given not the best opposition he has been dominate. the only fight that was questionable was against the crow who would actually match up will with anderson silva himself. he is always dangerous and can end a fight with one good elbow. but swick could get the ko or even submit him with the world famous swicketene!!!! i mean more unusual things have happened such as tim silvia shitting himself and still having the courage to show his face at an mma event.

well i just wanted to show how i feel about it :p
swick has a chance if he lands a few good strikes and silva gets in trouble
but as long as we talk about silva its hard to think that this kind of things can actualy happen
i realy want him to remain champ for as long as he has a contract in the UFC

Are people criticizing Swick for saying what he said? "I want Silva, etc etc.." Read the quotes, is it really trash talk or enthusiasm? There is no disrespect to Silva, no "I am the best" or "Nobody can beat me."

Wasn't Swick v. Lousioue (sp) set up by the UFC to kind of determine who Rich Franklin was going to mop the floor with next after this Silva character?

I can't stand this "He better watch his mouth, because he is going to get his ass whipped" attitude.

It's not that we think he's trash talking. It's just hard to believe that he's this willing to get in the ring with Silva after he crushed Franklin. I know that fighters want to fight the best, but this man is just scary.

im sick of hearing how scary this guy is!!! lets be honest with ourselves he beat chris leben because the kid thought he jaw was indestructable. i mean you stick it out there its gonna get hit. then he beat a rich franklin badly but rich was out of it before it even started. he took the clench and took some knees given he dident expect to get his face broken but that could happen anytime someone gets a knee to the face. Silvia is beatable and there is a reason thsi is his first major title. there are about 10 different fighters in his weight class that could beat him on any given night!!!!

You are sick of hearing how scary this guy is? You should try watching how scary he is. Then you might shave that number of 10 different fighters in his weight class that can beat him to a realistic number.

Anyone that can find a reason to take the piss out of Silva at this point is just "That guy".

no im not just "that guy" but he didnt exactly dominate in pride and yes he has been very impressive in his 2 ufc fights but so what. AA looked pretty dominate too until he let tim silvia beat him 2 of 3 and tim is not that great so before you nut hug this guy too much lets wait and see what he does when he's the one getting punched in the face!!!!

This guy seems to be an idiot. I think he's just one of those that wants to argue about any and every thing.

Silva's not scary, Tim Sylvia is not that good of a fighter, I would love to see him or better yet, him and three of his toughest friends get in the ring with either one of those two.

I bet he'd be scared if he was the one facing them.

he would crush me but as far as a fighter goes tim sylvia is not the best. he is big and can throw some hands but he shows nothing that could even come close to giving fedor problems. and as far as silvia he is a good fighter but if your scared you dont need to be in mma go play tennis or something.

I really hope the UFC steps up the level of competition now. I'd love to see Lindland back. Terell needs to get some more fights going. I'd love to see Tanner back if he could get his head straight.

The way things stand right now I think Anderson will hold the belt for awhile.
