Hey, Mike Swick’s hero (The Rock). Who would you never want to fight?

hero-rock-fight

If you are an avid MikeSwick.com reader or fan of the Real Quick podcast, you know that Swick has one man that he calls, hero. That man is none other than Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. The Rock is out promoting his new movie, “Skyscraper” and one of the questions that he was asked, was who he would NOT want to face in the boxing ring.

As it turns out, the man asking the question was Turkish and the Rock knows his combat sports. So, who wouldn’t The Rock want to fight?

Turkish smashing machine, Gokhan Saki.

When I saw that Gokhan Saki threw his name into the mix I immediately thought, “Don’t do it, Michael. You will literally become a statistic”. Bisping wants a retirement fight, not a death match.

First ever UFC All Violence list. This list is for straight killers!

All Violence List

The UFC Rankings are subjective and often don’t factor into title shots. If you’re like me, you’ve kind of given up on the official UFC rankings. They are haphazard at best, and title shots are seldom given to the number one contenders. It’s a business and the rankings just seem like unnecessary shenanigans. So, what I’ve … Read moreFirst ever UFC All Violence list. This list is for straight killers!

Watch Gokhan Saki’s Fight Night KO again. We told you he’d do damage.

Damage Incorporated. Gokhan Saki put in work at Fight Night 117

I mean, we warned people that they would see some damage being done when Gokhan Saki made his UFC debut. Clearly, we weren’t lying; As Saki dispatched of his opponent, Henrique da Silva in, the first round.

There was a reason everyone was so excited to see his UFC debut and, well, you saw why. All the way back in May I wrote an article titled, “UFC light heavyweights better brush up on their wrestling, because Gokhan Saki is coming.” MikeSwick.com’s other staff writer, Dan Rose, put out an article last week with the same sentiment.

As you may or may not have seen last night, we knew what we were talking about.

Saki beat the brakes off of da Silva for the better part of the first round. Once Saki was beginning to tire due to a more than two year layoff, da Silva saw his opening. He swarmed Saki and landed a few good shots. However, a striker like Saki is never out of a fight, no matter how tired he may be.

He threw a right and then a left hook that flattened da Silva.

Saki took home an extra $50,000 with the bonus he earned in his first MMA win, ever.
