Any rumors about his opponent?

I hope he and Marquardt squares off in an #1 contender match if Swick wins this next fight.

I was not a big fan of swick on the series but he has been really exciting since
Who is he fighting at 68?

Yeah swick is fighting Okami, and im pretty sure its for the number one contender spot, i think okami will win hes been rolling through TUF guys(kalib starnes, Rory Singer, one other guy) g on undercards and accually holds a win over anderson silva even though it was by DQ inj that fight OKami took silva down early and was controlling him and landing shots and then he got knocked out by an illegal kick. It sould be a good competetive fight i wouldnt be surprised if it was a 3 round war.

Marquardt and possibly Ace/Athlete should be in that mix too. Well we've seen stranger contenders in the past *cough* Quarry *cough*...

I think ace will get the a title shot immediatly if he is impressive against Mcdonald. Marquardt and Swick are also undefeated in the UFC, and I think if he beats Okami he desrves a title shot also. Marquardts most impressive UFC win was against Salverry in a snorefest( salaverrys fault IMO) . They need to put him against someone the casual fan knows, and he needs to win, for them to be able to sell that fight.

Well I think Nate actually should be more in line for a title shot then Mike Swick. Sure Mike has some good wins, but Nate fought some top guys in the ufc. Mike swicks only big win is "The Crow." Nate has wins over Ivan Salaverry, Joe Doerksen, Crafton Wallace, and Dean Lister. Mike Swick record is Alex Schoenauer, Gideon Ray, Steve Vigneault, Joe Riggs, and David Loiseau. Who has the more impressive wins and who's a King of Pancrase? So if you go by creditials I think Nate Wins.

Completely agree
Credentials , yes, no doubt. However , I think this is about what they can sell as much as who deserves the title shot.

MMath sucks...

I for one would also like to see a number 1 contenders match between these two.

I think beating Alex Schoenauer, Gideon Ray, Steve Vigneault, Joe Riggs, and David Loiseau is more impressive then beating Ivan Salaverry, Joe Doerksen, Crafton Wallace, and Dean Lister(overrated), plus mikex swicks fights minus the loaiseau fight have been in impressive fashion

Okami vs Swick should be a good fight, but I think Okami will win it.

Nate Marquardt should be in line for a title shot soon as well, he has been doing good and needs to get his due.
