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

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.

WB.

Saunders is tough but Swick is the superior fighter. Swick by KO.

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
