WEC career

Swanson made his WEC debut on March 24, 2007 with a victory over Tommy Lee by guillotine choke. He has also defeated Micah Miller. Following an eleven fight winning streak, Swanson lost to former UFC champion Jens Pulver, who was making his WEC debut. Swanson was forced to tap out at just 0:35 of round one due to an neck crank after attempting a single leg take down. Swanson was scheduled to fight Diego Nunes on the undercard at WEC 40, but Nunes was forced to withdraw from the fight just days before the bout because of a hand injury. Swanson lost to Jose Aldo by technical knock out via flying knees 8 seconds into the first round at WEC 41 on June 7, 2009.

Swanson defeated John Franchi on November 18, 2009 at WEC 44[2], winning Fight of the Night honors.[3] In his bout against Franchi, Swanson broke both of his hands.

Swanson is expected to face WEC newcomer Chan Sung Jung on April 24, 2010 at WEC 48.[4]
