As most others here, I"m not sure I understand the Goulet matchup. Last time I saw Goulet he was fighting at 155. They always have some of the strangest matchups at the finale.
Actually he has fought most if not all his UFC fights at WW I believe. He has also fought some MW guys in other venues.
I think this is a fight designed for Swick to finish or there just aren't too many top 10 fighters in the WW for Swick to fight.
Swick hasn't won a fight (other than by decision) for 2 years. His performance has been really lack lustre in the last two years, IMO. Goulet is a do or die fighter, so either we are going to see Swick KOed or Goulet KOed.
If I pick with my heart, I would go with Jonathan. If I pick with my brain, I say Swick (just by a C-hair), but that is based mostly off of the fact that picking the winner for fights with Jonathan (for me) is like mixing oil and water.
Jonathan Goulet is a dark horse in the UFC. A lot of people consider him a can, but I think he has the tools to beat a lot of fighters. It's unfortunate it seems he's caught in middle-tier limbo throughout his career, because he seems like a good guy.
I say this fight has the potential to be upset of the night.
