Mike Swick Suffers Concussion, Daley Steps in Against Kampmann at UFC 103

Though still listed on the UFC’s website as Martin Kampmann’s opponent on September 19th in Dallas, it appears as though current 170-pound contender Mike Swick will no longer be fighting in front of his fellow Texans at UFC 103.

According to Swick’s Twitter account, he suffered a “pretty bad” concussion while training when his legs were swept from under him and he landed on his head/neck. No timetable has been announced for his return to the Octagon.

In related news, British publication The Sun is reporting newly signed welterweight Paul Daley will step in for the injured Swick to face Kampmann. Daley, who was originally scheduled to face Brian Foster on the same card, is a respected striker who has compiled 16 TKOs in his 21 wins.

    I love Daley..

    Hope he can pull out a win here.. It’s a tough first fight in the UFC, but I think he can take home the victory..

    A concussion , huh

    Not to be a d*ck, but i thought that it would be something more serious,

    but yet again i know nothing about concussions.

    Swick vs Winner of (Jon Fitch vs Ricardo Almeida) = #1 Contender

    well shit. that sucks, I’m guessin this will not still be a number one contender match anymore? which would suck for kampmann because I think he deserves a shot. I do like what I’ve seen from paul daley in the MFC and cage rage though. yeah come to think of it this should be quite the entertaining matchup.

  • Makington says:

    Worse things have happened. I wanted to see the fight but I don’t think either fighter could have even come close to taking out GSP.

    It sucks for Martin pretty bad too, because now he only has something to lose, not to win. If he beats Paul, then noone cares, but if he loses he’s back down the ladder.

  • Should be a pretty good fight with Daley and Kampmann but it does kind of take the fights meaning in the WW division down a notch. Maybe this is a good thing though. Maybe GSP fights the winner of Daley and Kampmann and then after that fight the winner gets to fight Swick. Now instead of only having 1 contender the UFC is left with two.

    This is pretty bad. Swick wouldve made a better opponent for GSP than either of these guys IMO. The ww title picture is pretty ahrd just because GSP has beatin all the worthy contenders(Fitch, Koscheck, Alves..). And the guys with the most potential(Johnson, Hendrix,) still are too many fights away.
