Mike Swick was supposed to fight Keith Rockel on “Ultimate Fight Night” on Spike TV on August 6th. Rockel sustained a bicep injury in training and is now off the card.
MMAWeekly has learned that Swick’s new opponent will be Gideon Ray. Ray knows what it’s like to take fights on short notice. Ray fought David Loiseau on just four day’s notice at UFC 51. After the first round, Ray could not continue as doctors stopped the fight due to a massive cut on the head of Ray.
Now Ray will get two weeks notice for this fight against Swick. Ray has a solid 9-2 record and just won at the XFO show last month by TKO. Once again MMAWeekly.com has had it confirmed that Gideon Ray will face Mike Swick at the Ultimate Fight Night show in Las Vegas, Nevada on August 6th. Spike TV will televise the matches.
