“Winning this fight (at UFC 109) is super important; I don’t like losing. I hate losing that’s why it still hurts so bad after my last fight, but I have an opportunity now to get back on the winning track. If I were to win this fight and get a choice between a title shot or Dan Hardy, I would choose Dan Hardy. I want that rematch, and I want to go out there and have a better performance and perform to my ability. That’s kind of what my goal is so it all leads with this fight. I have to go out there and do what I have to do to get this win and then more opportunities will come. I want to be the first guy to stop him. I really want to be the first guy to finish Thiago. I think that would prove something.”
Seems to Mike Swick is a little bitter about his loss to the “Outlaw”.
