I was kinda hoping to see swick vs hardy, but this fight will be awesome. The cards shaping up nicely, looks like Mustapha Al Turk is going to get his second fight in the ufc on the undercard to.

I think it's a waste. Swick should be fighting higher caliber guys like an Anthony Johnson maybe or even Karo or Leben. Saunders is in tough.

im going to have to go with swick, not really a good matchup because swick would be more of a draw facing leban or i would like him to face anthony johnson too...that would be a good match...

Hopefully Saunders wins

i can't believe so many of you think this is going to be a good fight. i personally believe swick will take care of saunders pretty easily. swick is a much better fighter..

i think a fight with Dan Hardy or Anthony Johnson would be a bigger draw, although I think Saunders is an awesome fighter, Swick is 8-1 in the UFC and kind of deserves guys that are closer to title shots than Saunders.

Look for Ben to make his name on this fight i think he goes in and puts on a kickboxing clinic on swick. i like swick but Ben looked great in his last fight with Brandon Wolff. If he comes out with the confidence and the intencity that he did in that fight this could be a great one for his career..

with the exeption of the main card (silva/franklin) this could easily be FIGHT OF THE NIGHT

Swick puts away Saunders within 2 minutes.

Should be entertaining while it lasts.

I think saunders wins this one actually, either way i expect saunders to open some eyes, there is no chance that swick handles him easily or quickly, swick has looked terrible at ww and he is probably fighting one of the more well rounded guys hes ever faced, i dont think swick is that good i just think hes been fighting one dimensional fighters, this is gonna be a great matchup cant wait to see it and cant wait to see ufc 99

Are you kidding me? Yessssssssssssssssss. Saunders stepping up in competition. I think he'll take this one boys.

Uhhhh,would someone please explain to me why Ben Saunders is getting all this hype?Because he beat up Brandon Wolfe?!?!?!

Ya'll do realize that we're talking about a guy that was dominated by Tommy Speer not even a year and a half ago,don't you?To expect him to waltz in and beat a guy with an 8-1 record in the UFC just because he beat up Brandon Wolfe in highlight reel fashion is a little far fetched.

Saunders will be able to keep it competitive for a bit,but will get taken out within the first round.He's just not ready for someone like Swick yet.

I'm not sure I've seen an undercard fight that has the playground so divided! Today I'm picking swick via ud...Tomorrow who knows?????

Barely noticed this! Damn where have i been.

Anyway the only thing Saunders has ever impressed me with was those brutal knees in the clinch.....but that was against basicly a nobody.

Swick is a much better, smarter fighter and should finish Saunders before the end of round 2 if not 1
