heck I want to see a rematch with Okami, I really think with a better game plan Swick wins that fight, and he almost KOed him in the later rounds, too bad an exhausted Okami still took him down, maybe the Sprawl needs some work

Is he definitely cutting down to 170? If so he will be in a heavily crowded weight class, but staying at 185 would've kept him closer to a belt. Just work on the ground stuff and maybe build strength and he would've been fine...

I agree, at 185 he is never more than a couple Swick-otines away from the title. Agree with McBee about the sprawl needing some work. Love to watch this guy fight.

everything i heard from him was that okami was much stronger in that fight and thats why he was droppin to 170. either way i want to see him fight as he always puts on a good show

Im 96% sure it will Dustin Hazelett, will make a really good fight with his great height and reach and sick BJJ, but hopefully Swick can still bang him out

Id prolly prefer Swick to put muscle on and stay at 185, sure Okami was strong but he was also too strong for Silva (illegal upkick or not Okami would of beaten Silva and probably still would today with his strong takedowns) and he has been shifted out the door by the ufc now anyways, but there are great fights for him at 170 as well, just no chance he will get anywhere near a title shot for years UNLESS he fights Kos or Fitch
