Mike Swick has been out of action for quite some time, but he finally appears ready to step foot back in the Octagon at UFC 134 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

YES! YES! YES! I'm all for this event. Can't wait. Not sure about this Silva guy, though. He trains at Team Nogueira and X Gym, so I'm guessing he's pretty good. Hope can Swick can make a positive comeback.

War Swick! This is quite a comeback fight for "Quick". On UFC Rio, fighting someone who I am sure is no slouch.... Swick has had a great career thus far, I hope he gets a win and gets things back on track.

He's been out due to being mis-diagnosed with a stomach disease that wouldn't allow him to gain or keep any muscle mass. He's been posting tons of pictures on his Facebook though, and he looks really healthy, especially with all the muscle he's gained back. Can't wait to see how he does.

Silva seems like a real tough customer... I'll take him.

I like Swift, but he needs to step up his training if he is to remain relevant. I would like for him to work on his wrestling and Jiu Jitsu. He has the body type to be an effective JJ artist. Add that to his striking and he definitely can challenge the belt someday.
