Mike Swick to return to action by Nov. or Dec.

UFC welterweight Mike Swick, who underwent elbow surgery in July to remove bone fragments that had been limiting his arm movement, would like to return sometime in November or December.

"The Ultimate Fighter" season one contestant left a message on the Underground Forum at MixedMartialArts.com early Wednesday morning to shoot down rumors of him fighting on the Oct. 25 UFC 90: Silva vs. Cote card in Chicago.

"I am healing from surgery and will not be 100% for a few more weeks. I am fighting in December at latest, maybe November if I heal fast enough...

Thanks for the support! ;) Don't worry you guys will see plenty of energy in my next fight. I have 2 bad fights and everyone thinks I am a changed fighter. I am not changed at all and I am the same mean ass fighter I use to be now. I am finally getting my body healthy so I will get back to knocking people out so you guys can say how cool I am again! ;)"

Swick (12-2) is 7-1 in the UFC with his one loss against middleweight title contender Yushin Okami. After the loss Swick moved down to welterweight and won decisions against Josh Burkman and Marcus Davis.
