UFC Fighter Is Unrecognizable In Stage 4 Cancer Photo

Mike Swick, a former UFC fighter and participant in “The Ultimate Fighter, Season 1”, has announced that he is cancer-free after being diagnosed with Stage 4 lymphoblastic lymphoma in early 2022. Swick shared the news on his Instagram page and included a before-and-after comparison of his body in January 2022 compared to now. Despite the diagnosis, Swick kept a positive mindset and continued to move forward with his life. He acknowledged that the cancer could come back, but expressed confidence that he would be ready to fight it if it does. Swick’s announcement has been met with congratulations and well wishes from fans and the MMA community.



“Very positive I was gonna win this battle somehow,” Swick wrote on his Instagram page. “It can come back, and I can always get it later in life, but I will be much more prepared and ready and can at least always say no matter what, I kicked it’s ass!”

As you can see from my timeline the last year, it didn’t slow me down,” Swick wrote. “It was tough but keeping a positive mindset and not allowing it to change my life anymore than it had to was important and kept my stress down and life moving forward.

“Stage 4 of the most aggressive and deadly form of Lymphoma Leukemia [sic] was not an easy thing to hear so young and healthy but I been a fighter since I was a kid and accepted the challenge and knew this post would come one day. Literally from the day I took that first selfie, I couldn’t wait to post this.”
