After undergoing minor surgery late last week, UFC welterweight Mike Swick (12-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) hopes to return to action before the end of the year.

Swick today told MMAjunkie.com that the surgery was planned before his June victory over Marcus Davis.

"I've been needing to get it taken care of for a while," Swick said. "We knew we had to schedule it right after [the Davis] fight to get it done. I got a bunch of little bone fragments taken out of my elbow."

Swick was visiting the doctor for a follow-up appointment today but felt a late 2008 return was a strong possibility.

"I think [the elbow] is going to recover pretty well, and I should be back in November," Swick said. "I would say November, maybe December."

As we previously reported, Davis also entered the recent UFC 85 bout at less than 100 percent. Davis suffered a shoulder injury during overly intensive weightlifting sessions, and it resulted in a tear in the connective tissue between his triceps and rear deltoid. Davis went ahead and fought against his doctor's advice.
