Welterweight contender Mike Swick, who last week was forced to withdraw from his September 19 UFC 103 matchup against Martin Kampmann after suffering a concussion in training, recently Tweeted that he’ll be able to return by UFC 104 on October 24 and is hoping to fight Matt Hughes in his next bout.
“No next opponent has been offered, but yes I would love to fight Hughes. I will be ready by UFC 104 so just waiting for the UFC to call,” wrote Swick. “I have no set return yet. I will be ready by UFC 104. So 104, 105, 106, 107… I will fight as soon as I get an opportunity!”
Last week, Hughes announced that h’d signed a multi-fight extension with the UFC and was in talks to fight an opponent he’s never faced before, though the opponent as well as a possible return date were not disclosed.
