Looks like Mike Swick has gone through with his stupid plan to leave the weakest division in the UFC and fight as a welterweight. Right off the bat they’re throwing him into the deep end against Josh Burkman, who sucked so bad in his last outing that everyone still thinks he lost to Forrest Petz.
Burkman has a pretty basic formula for fighting … push, shoot, slam, pound. He does a good job of dominating guys who don’t have an answer for his style of fighting, but you saw what happened to him against Karo Parisyan. Swick dropped down specifically so he would be too strong to push around, so I guess we’ll see if the cut was worth it.
