    wow, thats a joke...In my wildest dreams i MIGHT be able to imagine Swick fighting for the #1 contender spot assuming it was against jon fitch or somethin but Dan Hardy?? He wins a split decision against marcus davis and now hes fighting for the #1 contender??

    I'd be pissed if i was Fitch or Koscheck. Shit i'd be pissed if i was Karo Parysian, he's been trying to get a WW title shot his whole career and he's beaten a ton of great fighters.

    Hardy is good, but isn't worthy of a #1 contender fight. I'm sure they're just putting him in there on the off chance that he wins to make some more money on the UK market.

    Hardy vs. Daley would make much more sense since both are strikers and both just beat two good fighters.

    and then MAYBE have them fight swick for #1 contender and give swick a tune up fight or whatever, or have him fight Kos/Fitch but that won't happen :sad2:

    .

    no one at 170 is all that deserving, Swick's only notable win was against the same person hardy beat.

    Fitch, Kos, Paulo Thiago all fucked up eachothers chances at a title shot.

    IMO, it would be most entertaining to see Swick vs. Anthony Johnson for #1 contender. While less deserving than Hardy, Johnson might actually put up a fight against GSP.

    it's too early for him + Swick has beaten more notable fighters than him. i really think having hardy/daley vs. swick/fitch and then having those two fight each other for #1 contender but swick/fitch would never happen :sad2:

    he's got the potential but let him have a few more fights before we're talking contention

    Swicks lost one fight in like 5 years and that was to Okami a huge MW and swick was a tiny MW hence the move to WW.

    The guy deserves a shot at a shot.

    There goes UFC and stupid decisions for fights. Still a fight I wanna see but even if hardy beats swick he does not deserve the match.

    They come from the same camp.

    Makes sense as it's pretty much a gimme for Swick - the guy they want fighting GSP.

    this thread is ridiculous. Hardy is getting the slot because of a well known policy of the UFC: If you're exciting, they will turn a blind eye to your deficiencies and always look at you with rose colored glasses. And for that matter, the WW division is a mess. GSP is not going to lose (god it pains me to say that) any time soon, and besides swick there are no real stand-outs. Whatever your personal thoughts on Swick are, he is still 9-1 in the UFC, and seems to have fully matured into a complete fighter. When he came into the UFC he was a one trick pony, and as he developed he calmed down and lost some of his edge. But now he has figured out how to be explosive and exciting without being crazy or stupid. If he takes out Hardy, I would not count him out of a fight with GSP. GSP could easily have his legacy and highlight reel in the back of his mind, and swick could get him tangled up in a blitzkrieg, where the chances are much more level than a technical striking match or any type of grappling.
