Mike Swick vs Jonathan Goulet UFC Fort Bragg match up being discussed

Welterweights Mike Swick (12-2) and Jonathan Goulet (22-9) will attempt to hook ‘em up once again at UFC Fight Night 16: "Fights for the Troops" from Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, N.C., on December 10.

The pair was first scheduled to collide at UFC Fight Night 11 on September 19, 2007; however, "Quick" injured his ribs during training and was forced to withdraw from the 170-pound showdown.

And that was after the Canadian called out Swick when the camp of Chris Leben turned down the opportunity to rematch Swick in the main event of the evening (handlers for "The Crippler" opted for Terry Martin instead).

Be careful what you wish for, Mr. Goulet.

Swick is coming off his most impressive performance in more than a year, outpointing Marcus Davis on all three judges scorecards at UFC 85: "Bedlam" in June. It was the first loss for the "Irish Hand Grenade" in 11 fights, snapping a win streak that dated back to early 2006.

The American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) product -– who most recently used time off from elbow surgery to tie the knot -- took home a lackluster majority decision win over Josh Burkman at UFC Fight Night 12 in his welterweight debut.

Goulet, on the other hand, is also tending to some injuries -- he was supposed to face undefeated welterweight Paul Kelly at UFC 85 before pulling out because of undisclosed health concerns.

"The Road Warrior" is riding back-to-back wins after a recent technical knockout of Kuniyoshi Hironaka at UFC 83: "Serra vs. St. Pierre" earlier this year, earning "Fight of the Night" honors. Prior to that he choked out Paul Georgieff in the first round at TUF 6 Finale.

UFC Fight Night 16: "Fights for the Troops" could also feature another welterweight bout between Josh Koscheck and Yoshiyuki Yoshida ... stick around for more good news.
