Sure the fights with Swick, Kos, or Fitch would all be good fights but I dont think any of those fights could carry a card. I would say that Matt vs Swick could co-main event a card but thats only because Swick is one win away from a title shot.
that's the disturbing part .. burkman, davis, goulet and saunders ... really, i know the UFC has no rhyme or reason to giving title shots, but that is just ridiculous .. i mean fighting rumble, alves or someone else makes more sense .. and he just signed to fight hardy, which is a step up from these guys, but not making him shot worthy ..
