“I have read some articles on the internet saying that I may lack the “killer instinct” in this fight with Swick because I’ve hung out with Mike and we get along very well. Not gonna happen…. A couple of days of pleasant conversation with Swick won’t save him from the beating I am going to give him next month … on the whole, it is easier for me to prepare for Swick than it is for Swick to prepare for me. I’ve only had three fights in the UFC and I’ve not shown even half of my skills yet. There are lots of things I do well that Swick has no clue about, whereas Swick has been in the UFC for four years and I know exactly what he can and can’t do. I think this is the fight of the night. My style will gel very well with Mike’s. We both come from a kickboxing background, we both have very fast strikes and there’s so much on the line for us both.”

Mind Games again. This time I do not think Swick will rise to it as he just sems too chilled out.

I'd say this is actually pretty accurate.

I love me some Dan Hardy. I hope he brings it...

Not going to happen. The only way Swick will beat Hardy is by sub. I think Hardy will win by TKO in the third with some overwhelming GnP.

It could happen , Hardy is a tough match up for anybody , with his fighting style and Swicks I think there is a real good chance he catches Swick coming in . Swick is a great fighter but I think Hardy is just a real bad match up Swick .

See I would tend to disagree. I would actually say that Swick is a bad matchup for Hardy. Swicks reach and kicks are going to give Hardy problems and I give the submission advantage to Swick as well. I also think Swick has better wrestling and that he could set up a submission from top control with some GnP. I also think he could get a KO standing. Maybe I'm crazy, I've been wrong before, I'm just not quite sold on Hardy yet. I don't see what he does so much better than Swick. He's got better technical boxing but that's about it.
