Here is the play-by-play from Swick vs. Brown:
Swick lands a short left hand, but gets taken down for his troubles. Brown goes for a D’arce choke and has over three minutes to finish things. Swick wiggles free, though now gets caught in a triangle/armbar submission. Swick is doing a great job of defending and manages to escape.
Brown unleashes a left hook-right hand combo that drops Swick. He follows up with one more shot on the ground, but Swick was unconscious when he hit the canvas.

BEST OF MAXIM
Mike Swick (Pictured) ended his 29-month hiatus in spectacular fashion by putting DaMarques Johnson to sleep with a vicious right hand at “UFC on FOX 4.” Unfortunately for “Quick,” his followup on primetime television didn’t work out as smoothly.
On Saturday night, Swick found himself on the wrong end of a highlight reel knockout. Matt Brown was the man who put him down...
This is going to be a fun fight to kick off the FOX portion of the evening. These guys absolutely can not have a boring fight, as it is not in either of their DNA makeup to do so. I expect fireworks early and often as these two veterans of the sport slug it out until one of them takes a nap and wakes up in the shadow of the Space Needle with a headache and a fight of the night...
After two years on the shelf, Mike Swick's comeback was one of the biggest story lines heading into UFC on FOX 4 this past summer. After his knockout of the night performance against DaMarques Johnson on that very card, it only made sense to give the fans another look at 'Quick' on the next big FOX card. Matt Brown knows a thing or two about comebacks. It's no secret...
The UFC On FOX 5 fights themselves did come through, as most contests were exciting, entertaining and featured a number of finishes. Although not everything went according to plan.
Congratulations to speeds who won our UFC on Fox: Henderson vs Diaz Pick 'Em Contest (via a tiebreaker). Next Pick 'Em Contest will be for one of the UFC events this coming weekend - haven't decided which one to run it for yet. Thanks for playing!
