It looks like Mike Swick’s run as welterweight is over. The UFC veteran will be packing on the pounds as he looks to move up to middleweight.
I wanna come back at a big and healthy 185. No more sickly 170 for me! 😉 @ChrisWhite209 Making that UFC return?

Swick joined the UFC in 2005 as a middleweight. He went 6-1 during that stint before opting for a cut to welterweight. He found moderate success early with four straight wins. Since then, Swick is 1-3 with losses to Dan Hardy, Paulo Thiago and Matt Brown. The most recent appearance was a December loss at UFC on FOX.
There is no time frame for when Swick will return as welterweight.
