Mike Swick is currently in the biggest fight of his life.
Swick has taken to his Instagram account to reveal that he’s been dealing with cancer. There was a period when the former UFC fighter didn’t even know he had it. Luckily, he has gotten the official diagnosis without waiting even longer than the seven weeks he was unaware of having cancer.
Mike Swick’s Toughest Battle
Here’s what Mike Swick said in a statement regarding the cancer diagnosis.
“Sometimes life throws you lemons, and then sometimes the whole lemon tree falls on your head!
“Anyway, for those wondering where I have been the last 5 weeks, I been battling Cancer in the toughest and most aggressive battle I have ever had. Started with a 48-hour water fast, then the first Chemo session with an additional 24-hour water fast, then a day of solid plant-based organic food, followed by another chemo and fast, then plant-based again, keeping this routine until the week was over. From then I kept Chemo every other day for the next 3 weeks while eating only plant-based organic cancer-killing foods daily.
“After 7 days all 15+ swollen lymph nodes in my neck were completely gone. Never had a single fever throughout, and vitals were always normal. Round 1 went to me for sure!
“Then I continued same chemo and plant based routine, without anymore fasting, until I checked out a couple days ago. Now recovering at home and actually feeling amazing mentally! Vitals all still good but still full of Chemo and a little weak and quite skinny. The lowest I got after the fasts and first week was 151lbs. 😱 I will get a scan and update in just over a week but I decided not to hide this. I want everyone to watch as I beat this BS and recover myself back to 100% with a full recovery. So stay tuned… 🙏🏻”
Swick finished his pro MMA career with a record of 15-6. His last fight took place back in July 2015. He dropped a unanimous decision to Alex Garcia. Just five days later, Swick announced his retirement.
