Four New UFC on Fox 4 Bouts; Mike Swick Returns

Mike Swick at UFC Fight Night 12The UFC on Fox 4 fight card got a big boost on Tuesday with UFC officials confirming verbal agreements are in place for four new bouts for the Aug. 4 event in Los Angeles.

Inaugural Ultimate Fighter alum Mike Swick (14-4) will be seeing his first action in the Octagon in more than two-and-a-half years, having sat on the sideline with injuries and a serious health condition. He’ll square off with fellow TUF alum in Season 9’s DaMarques Johnson (15-10).

Josh Grispi (14-3) will also be making his return after more than a year out of action. He’ll be looking to bounce back from back-to-back losses when he steps in the Octagon with Pablo Garza. Garza (13-3) is also coming off of two consecutive defeats after winning his first two UFC bouts.

In the featherweight division, Nam Phan (17-10) takes on Cole Miller (18-6), while Manny Gamburyan (11-7) faces Michihiro Omigawa (13-11-1).

UFC middleweight contender Brian Stann welcomes former Bellator champion Hector Lombard to the Octagon in the UFC on Fox 4 main event at the Staples Center.

  1. Psyched to see Swick back! Dude is fun to watch.
    Hoepfully now that his health is in check, he can maintain some focus and consistency.

  2. Looking forward to seeing Swick back in action.

  3. Absolutely, Swick is a gamer. Hope he can stack up a few wins and get some momentum going. Haven’t seen a “Swickotine” in a while!

    Also excited to see Grispi back in action. Dude had a few tough loses but I see a lot of potential in him. Garza is no push-over, but I can see Josh taking the W with a choke.

  4. I thought Swick was finished. They are giving him a good comeback fight, hes gotta feel like this is a must win fight. His last two fights were boring and he looked horrible. Another lack luster performance and he will be cut.

  5. Glad to see Swick back, but I’m really looking forward to Cole Miller’s fight.

  6. I think he looked best at MW its unfortunate he had a stomach illness that prevented him from building muscle mass. Hes been inactive but he has always been a fighter most people enjoy watching maybe thats why he & R. Huerta opened a gym together both exciting fighter win or lose. Hope hes settles back in cause Demarques has been active even if its actively getting his butt whooped sure he doesent want to get cut if he looses hes game but I hope Swick destroys him Rd 1 or heck even 2. (quick sub or KO)

  7. Mike Swick good to see him back i was wondering where he was.
