I think this is a great fight, I just have no idea who will take it....

Davis has great power and boxing ability and his ground game is evolving...

Swick has incredible speed and CAN be explosive and chain good combos...

Who will take it and how will the fight go?

I am thinking it will be a stand up battle unless Davis decides to take to the ground but I still believe Marcus will have the upper hand with his KO ability....

I think Davis takes this one, i haven't been impressed with Swick since he cut that weight against Burkman for the first time... i think Davis's boxing pedigree will serve him well in this fight ... could be a war though, Swick is no joke

my take on this fight which i have posted a few times already (keep in mind i am a huge Davis fan):


i see Swick looking to trade with Davis. maybe for the first half of the first round, you will see the reach of Swick frustrating Marcus just a little. then, when he feels comfortable i see him getting past the reach and unloading some serious flurries. i can't see Swick KOing Davis. i don't know why some people question his chin, he was a pro boxer for many years and his only MMA loss to TKO was from a cut. granted he was dropped by Paul Taylor, but Taylor is an excellent kickboxer and he hit him with a well placed head kick that Marcus recovered from very quickly. he was able to pull off the armbar in that situation anyway. also, i can't see Swick submitting Marcus. Marcus' JJ is very underrated and a lot of people don't realize that he has been working grappling intensely since a year before TUF because he realized that submission were his weakness. i feel that is not the case anymore and i believe that Marcus' JJ is good enough not to get subbed, and maybe even good enough to get a submission if it hits the ground. i can't see Swick winning this fight, he just isn't powerful or quick enough in this division. i also see Marcus winning a UD similar to his fight with Forrest Petz, and if not then a 2nd round KO for Marcus. Swick is going to try and come out fast and exciting to make up for his last fight, and with that mentality he will walk into a flurry world class punches that will hurt him badly if he is not careful.

Marcus by 2nd round (T)KO

i am taking davis. i also was not impressed with swick when he cut the weight against burkman. i think davis will get the ko. swick is going to come out kicking probably but i think davis will take him dowm after he eats a couple kicks. i am picking and going for davis he is on an good winning streak.

Swick hasn't looked the same since his fight with Loiseau. I'm not sure what happened but he hasn't been aggressive at all. In order for Swick to win this fight he is going to have to get in there and fight, and even then I think it's a very tough fight.

the only thing i can see Davis needing to watch out for is the "Swickatine"... but i still don't see that being much of a threat

swick is going to have a good reach. both good strikers and both not bad on the ground. but idk who takes it honestly i like both guys but there has to be a loser unless its a draw which i hope doesnt happen.

I think this fight will go to decision.

Swick via 2nd round sub. Alot of people like to talk about davies having an underrated ground game, but i personally believe swick has one of the most under rated ground games in the ufc along with rich franklin. I mean, he was out grappling stephan bonnar, whos a blackbelt under carlson gracie and was like 15 pounds heavier at the time. And that was like 3 years ago so theres no doubt his ground game has evolved since then.

I think they spend the first round feeling each other out, with a few shots getting through at the end. Second round, davis drops swick and jumps into his guard, swick recovers then eventually works a triangle.

I don't think Swick is going to stand and trade with Davis... I can see maybe a quick guillotene coming from Swick...

If Davis keeps this standing he gets the KO, IMO... Swick's got fast hands, but Davis has a good chin and uncomprable power for his size... I'd love to see Davis pull out the sub in this one too though...

Just really hope Davis wins... I think it'll put him in line for either a rematch with Alves (then a title shot), which I would love to see... Or maybe even a title shot right off the bat

Here's a key word with swick "can" be fast.He started cutting weight and lost some of that.but maybe this what he needs to get his feet under him again.But in the end i see davis with his hand bein raised

Ilike to see Davis fights its always existing but has for an title shop i don t know yet, he is good no doubt but common he doesn t stand a change against GSP, one thing is fpr sure is that he is not loosing to Swick. Davis by destruction rd2

both are life long gatekeepers... personaly i want to see Davis lose because of how overraited he has become by beating up cans. They are strikers in a wrestlers world they will never be top 5 fighters until the current top guys leave
