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.
Perhaps the only bad news for Brown was that his performance didn’t earn him ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors. Yves Edwards warned the $65,000 bonus check for his assault on Jeremy Stephens.
UFC on FOX 5 took place inside Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.

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...
For Matt Brown, Rory MacDonald, and Alexander Gustafsson, it was a night to remember. However, Mike Swick, BJ Penn, and Shogun Rua all had nights to forget Saturday night, and questions remain as to what’s next for each. Three seem to be at a crossroads and one seems likely to start over at the bottom.
