Kelly Crigger: True. I wasn't a fan of Swick moving down to 170 pounds and, in fact, I said it was a huge mistake when he danced around Josh Burkman in his first welterweight fight. But after defeating Marcus Davis, I think Swick is on the verge of a run at the title. Of course, now comes the hard part. To get a shot at GSP, he still has to beat a high-profile guy, like Matt Hughes (who is still around), Thiago Alves, or Diego Sanchez. If UFC brings Jake Shields into the organization, he could provide a real test for Swick, who hasn't been challenged by a true grappler at 170 pounds yet. The other "Oh, crap!" factor here is his own camp. Swick trains with Josh Koscheck and Jon Fitch, both of whom have had their shot at St. Pierre and lost, but still remain among the top 10 welterweights in the UFC. Given Dana White's disdain for the AKA camp lately, it wouldn't surprise me to see Swick facing one of these two fighters to earn his title shot. The question is, can he put aside his friendship with them to advance his career goals?
