UFC Quick Quote: Ben Saunders wants another chance at Mike Swick after 'uncalled for' remarks


"After the [UFC 99] fight, (Swick) ended up coming to the back and talking for a bit. I was kind of feeling out if he was just trying to gloat or just trying to rub it in my face. What's going on here? I went with it. He seemed like it may have been he was more excited than gloating and I was like, 'Oh, that's cool man.' I went up to Bob Cook after, I was looking for my corner Paul Rodriguez and I said, 'Hey Bob, have you seen Paul? And he was like, 'Man, you're still smiling, huh?' I had nothing to be ashamed of. I got TKO'ed by Mike Swick and I'm fighting in the UFC living my dream and then they said something. Then as I was walking away his entire corner and Mike Swick were more like, 'Got knocked the f--- out,' or something like that. And I was like, 'Are you serious?' I thought that was ridiculous, arrogant and uncalled for. Mike Swick just was in the back with me trying to be cool with me and then you're going to act like that because you're with your crew and all laughing in my face as I'm walking away?"

-- UFC welterweight Ben Saunders talks to about the treatment he received from Mike Swick after their 170-pound battle at UFC 99 back in June. "Killa B" was felled by strikes in the second round and blames his tepid performance on a rib injury he brought with him on fight night. The opposing AKA striker was "Quick" to dismiss his fallen foe and according to the TUF 6 vet, nothing would be sweeter than a little revenge from a healthier -- and more dangerous Saunders.
