Although best known as UFC welterweight contender, Mike Swick is finding his other job lucrative, as well. On Friday Swick finished a remarkable run in the World Series of Poker event No. 42–a three-day no-limit hold'em tournament with a $3.4 million prize pool. Swick made the final day of competition and finished 10th among the event's 2,521 competitors. The showing allowed him to turn a $1,500 buy-in into winning of $34,748. Swick, a sponsored player of online site Full Tilt Poker, actually played in his eighth WSOP event and cashed in his second. (In addition to the "main event," each annual WSOP now includes more than 50 other, smaller events.) In 2007's event No. 25 ($2,000 buy-in no-limit hold'em), Swick finished 151st out of 1,618 competitors and earned $3,828. He also plans to enter the main event-the $10,000 No Limit Hold 'Em World Championship-which starts 2 days after UFC 116.
