Swick, Koscheck score fast KOs


Mike Swick lived up to his nickname of "Quick" on Wednesday on the UFC's Fight for the Troops card at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C.

Swick connected with a perfect right hand on Jonathan Goulet's chin, then finished the Canadian off with 19 hard punches on the ground to earn the technical knockout victory just 33 seconds into their welterweight bout.

Welterweight contender Josh Koscheck, who lost a tough bout to Thiago Alves on Oct. 25 at UFC 90, didn't let Swick, his American Kickboxing Academy teammate, get all the glory. Koscheck hammered Yoshiyuki Yoshida with a pair of right hands and scored a knockout at 2:15 of the first round.

One-time World Extreme Cagefighting light heavyweight champion Steve Cantwell won his UFC debut when he put an arm bar on previously unbeaten Razak Al-Hassan at 4:04 of the first round.

Jim Miller was impressive in winning a unanimous decision over Matt Wiman in a lightweight bout. Tim Credeur stopped Nate Loughran at the end of two rounds of a middleweight bout. Ben Saunders stopped Brandon Wolf in just 1:49 of their welterweight bout.
