Mike “Quick” Swick is off of the UFC Fight Night 11 card scheduled for Sept. 19 at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas due to a rib injury suffered in training.
American Kickboxing Academy’s Bob Cook confirmed to MMAWeekly that Swick sustained a rib injury while training with Josh “The Punk” Thomson and has been forced out of the bout with Goulet.
It was supposed to be Swick’s debut as a welterweight. The former middleweight contender decided to drop down to the welterweight class following his UFC 69 loss to Yushin Okami.
A replacement for Swick has yet to be named.
