Oh boy, this would be a helluva fight.
Swanson's in a bad spot right now, because despite his excellent and impressive run as of late, he's still dropped major losses to the top three in the division(Aldo, Mendes, Lamas) and I regard him as a step behind all three ranking and skill set-wise.
IMO, Crusher is going to come into the UFC and either do one of two things: He's either going to come in, look impressive at FW and really make a run with his exciting and powerful style, making fans along the way and getting some OTN bonuses off the bat.....or he's going to falter against the UFC's top FW fighters and flounder due to increased competition, age, wear and tear and the weighcut made presumably stateside.
This matchup benefits both fighters, it either gives Swanson a recognizable and credible win against a respected veteran and adds to his strong case for top contention while the FW division sorts itself out or it gives Crusher an impressive UFC debut win, solidifying his place in the top tier at FW and opens up a slew of really exciting match ups, as his style is fun as hell to watch.
I'd book it, but I see them lobbing Crusher a softer first bout.
