UFC veteran Mike Swick announced that he would be returning to the Octagon in January yesterday afternoon after releasing a bulletin on MySpace.
Swick stated that he would be fighting on Spike TV, most likely meaning that he will be part of the card for UFC Fight Night 12 on January 23rd.
Swick has not fought since losing an unanimous decision to Yushin Okami at UFC 69 in April. Swick was scheduled to face Jonathan Goulet at UFC Fight Night 11 but was forced to pull out of the fight after sustaining a rib injury during training.
The upcoming fight in January will probably mark Swick’s debut at welterweight.
