The Immortal is solid and did a great job last night. I think somebody is just butthurt because their guy got kayoed. Matt Brown is a great guy in real life and I mean outside of the fight world. So piss off haters.

He hesitated and didn't whack him at full crack. I thought he did what he was supposed to do, punch until the ref steps in?   Brown's hand speed is slow and that makes Swicks loss that much worse because Swick is known for his fast hands. Its time for Mike to have a long hard think about his future as he has 0 chance of ever winning a belt no matter how nice a guy he is

Swick looked good. He did not appear gassed or sickly. He is leaner, but he looks fast. He took some solid shots before falling to a super tough Brown.

That wasnt matts fault it was the ref's. Im pretty sure Matt hesitated after Swick dropped, and so did the ref, so Matt kept going like he should.

Like both fighters, and happy for Brown. But Swick's health issues seem to have taken a LOT out of him. He used to be reasonably explosive and active, now he looks gassed from the opening minutes and is scary lean at 170. I hate to say it, but I wonder if he should keep fighting, he looks so sucked out all the time.

I like Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping, and I think the forearm afterwards was revenge for the trash talking Bisping did on TUF.Funny how I can't voice my opinion without getting flamed and accused of crying. Yeah I hate what just happened, and I respect Matt Brown as a fighter, but I'm not personally a fan. Sucked to see Swick get knocked out after such a long road back to the cage.
