Daniel Swain Looks to SFL America Fight to Get Back on a Winning Streak

September 26, 2015

Admittedly, featherweight Daniel “Agent Orange” Swain’s 2015 hasn’t been his best year.

Following a draw in M-1 Global in December of last year, Swain had hoped to get back on track in his first bout of 2015 against Scott Thometz at RFA 27 in July, only to get knocked out early in the fight.

“It’s definitely been up and down,” Swain told MMAweekly.com. “Every time I get on a roll, I get caught or end up fighting flat.

“This year has been one of those years when I’ll really figure out if this is something I really want to do or not – and I’ve never wanted to do it more. This year has only been more motivation for me.”

Thankfully, Swain was able to rebound in August and pick up a first-round TKO of Matt Goff for King of the Cage.

“I took a short notice fight against a guy (in Goff) I knew nothing about at a catch weight, and I went out there and honestly was gun shy coming off the knockout loss, but when I finally started fighting, I was firing on all cylinders and got the job done pretty quickly,” said Swain.

Swain (13-5) will be gunning for his second straight win of the year when he takes on Drew Brokenshire (14-5) on Saturday in Tacoma, Wash., in a 145-pound feature bout for Super Fight League America.

“We’ve been in the same area our whole careers, so we’ve always known that someday we were going to fight each other,” said Swain of facing Brokenshire. “It’s a fight I’ve been looking forward to for a long time.

“Stylistically, it’s a match-up that’s favorable for me. Not taking anything away from Drew, I just feel that I’m more athletic and better than him everywhere. He’s a great fighter and very tough, but I just feel like I’m a step above him when it comes to technique and ferocity.”

Before Swain can think about taking the next step in his career, he wants to fully turn his year around and regain the kind of momentum he’s built in the past.

“Right now, it’s been a bit since I strung together multiple wins, so getting this win would be huge for me,” said Swain. “It’ll help me get back on a streak like I was before 2015.”
