According to MMAMania, Mike “Quick” Swick will take on the “Irish Hand Grenade” Marcus Davis at UFC 85 on June 7 from the O2 Arena in London, England.

Davis has been one of the most entertaining fighters on the UFC venture into the European market. On a eleven fight win streak, Davis’s last win came when he knocked out Jess Liaudin at UFC 80.

Mike Swick dropped down to welterweight after being overpowered by Yushin Okami at UFC 69.

At UFN 12, Swick was unable to put on a show as Josh Burkman kept Swick on the defensive defending takedowns just to take the unanimous decision win over the fellow TUF veteran.

    Swick better not be as hesitant with Davis as he was with Burkman………Davis doesn't back down and isn't afraid to take a shot!

    yeah if swick does not bring it he could be in trouble,he may still be in trouble with davis who has looked great maybe swick should think about trying to take it to the ground where davis is not as good.

    Davis is on a roll and I think he will win this fight unless the old Swick comes back. Its been a while since Swick has entered that cage on a streak and full of confidence and that may be the swinging factor in this fight. One things for sure, I hope it doesn't go the distance because both of these guys can finish fast.

    really nice matchup by silva here. yeah, i'm almost certain there will be a KO but then again you never know, just like chucks last two fights that were guaranteed KO's turned decisions.

    tom your wrong go look on fight finder, since losing to melvin davis has won 11 fights. get ur facts straight but. sometimes people fight in other places than the ufc it is possible u know lol.

    i think this should be a great fight an while i like swick i like davis more and think he can pull it out. should be a great stand up war tho.

    I like both guys too but I'm rooting for Davis. The guy was one fight away from retirement and worked his ass off to get back in the mix. He has been fighting newcomers so the UFC could have an instant highlight reel for a fighter they wanted to develop, yet he finished them all. I think he is talented and fights with a ton of heart. Whoever wins this fight deserves a lot of recognition.
