Swick vs. Mitchell at UFC Fight for the Troops

The UFC’s next Fight For The Troops event, tentatively scheduled for Jan. 22 in Fort Hood, Texas, is starting to gain a lot of steam from rumored fights, and another one can be added to the quickly expanding list.

Mike Swick is expected to return after nearly a year out of the game to face David Mitchell in his sophomore effort in the Octagon at the UFC event in Fort Hood. MMAWeekly.com sources confirmed that both fighters have verbally agreed to the bout. They will fight in the welterweight division.

Swick (14-4) has been out of action since losing his second straight bout, to Paulo Thiago at UFC 109, to deal with a condition called severe spastic esophagus, which was originally misdiagnosed as a stomach disease called dyspepsia. The condition forced Swick to implement a restrictive diet that he says made it difficult to maintain muscle mass and keep his energy levels up.

“I wanna get this under control and then gain a little weight back before fighting (again),” Swick told MMAWeekly.com back in August. “Hopefully the end of the year.”

If Swick fights Daudi Mitchell, he will tear through him. Pretty simple Gameplan..Throw bombs as fast as possible, keep it standing.

That'd be a step down for Leben right now. I always thought swick was a little overrated anyway. And with two straight losses he's got some work to do.

A middle weight Rumble Johnson, but if he gets some wins back at mw, lets see that Leben fight.
