I was just loving that Marcus Davies fight. I was staring at the screen open-mouthed, and when it finished I raised my arms and cheered.

What really impressed me was that we saw the whole package in that fight- a brutal knock-down, ground and pound, a submission. Hats off to both of the fighters.

Marcus Davies has improved so much since his somewhat embarrassing performance in TUF2. How much more can he keep improving? Could he break the top 4 or 5 guys?

The thing that impressed me the most was he was openly willing to admit that boxing alone wouldn't cut it with the big boys. We have seen so many people with big hands that think a little BJJ and they are fine. Marcus realized that he needed to completely re-work his game and has shown that you are never too old to start over and do it right. The man still has bombs in his hands, but only top level BJJ are going to have a big advantage over him on the ground.

We all have different ways of manifesting our stunnedness. Some of us shout, some of us gape, some of get drunk, and I, apparently, type "Marcus Davies' potential" and then, through an implausible series of keystrokes, turn that title into just "M".

Yeah. I read an interesting interview with him a while back. He said something like "First I thought that I could just knock these guys out while they were coming in. Then I thought that I could just learn takedown defense so they couldn't take me down and I could knock them out. Then I thought that I could learn submission defense and how to get back up, so that I could knock them out. Now I know that I have to train every aspect of the game and have absoltely no holes in my game." Since then he's really been on a tear and it looks like his realization is paying off big time.
