Mike Swick and Steve Vigneault at UFC 58

“Ultimate Fighter” original Mike Swick has been knocked out of his return to the Octagon at UFC 134 with an injury.

“Mike Swick’s long-awaited comeback to the Octagon will have to wait a little longer after he was forced to withdraw from his UFC 134 bout against Erick Silva due to injury. A replacement opponent for the debuting Silva will be announced shortly,” the UFC posted on its website on Thursday evening.

Swick hasn’t fought since UFC 109 in February of 2010 when he lost the second of back-to-back fights.

He has been dealing with a mis-diagnosed ailment that has kept him sidelined ever since. Swick had planned to return at UFC Fight for the Troops 2 in January of this year, but his opponent, David Mitchell, had to withdraw due to an injury, so Swick took some more time to deal with his own health issues.
