I think Swick has built up a pretty big fan base and if he stopped Loiseau, the UFC would spin the fact that Franklin didn't do it. I know all this is hypothetical B.S. but I was just wanting your opinion because your posts are usually thorough.
I think Swick is a good fighter. I don't think he's at the level of Loiseau though. I also didn't think Diego would beat Karo. It could happen but i see this as less likely as Diego's fight. IF it were to happen, he would most likely be at a title shot unless the UFC felt like waiting one more fight, but i doubt they'd risk that because no one else has built themselves up like Swick in the UFC so it would be better marketing for the UFC. And of course like you said with a KO win they would definately use that because Rich hit Loiseau with some bombs for 5 rounds and couldn't finish him, so Swick would make a HUGE statement with that. Again i don't see this happening but if it does, expect a Franklin/Swick title fight early next year.
