Davis vs Lytle on tap for UFC 93

UFC welterweights Marcus Davis (15-4 MMA, 7-2 UFC) and Chris Lytle (26-16-5 MMA, 5-8 UFC) have agreed to meet at UFC 93, and bout agreements for the fight have been distributed, sources close to both fighters told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The fight is expected to air on UFC 93's televised main card, which takes place Jan. 17 at The O2 in Dublin, Ireland.

The event airs on pay per view.

Davis and Lytle both spoke openly about wanting to fight each other even before they both competed last month at UFC 89. With victories from each fighter -- Davis submitted Paul Kelly, and Lytle stopped Paul Taylor with a unanimous-decision win -- the pieces fell in place for the bout.

As Davis first told TAGG Radio, MMAjunkie.com's official radio partner, in July, he and Lytle first discussed the fight earlier this year.

"Chris Lytle and I want to fight each other," Davis said at the time. "He's expressed that he wants to fight me. I've expressed that I want to fight him.

"We like each other, we respect each other, but we want to have that fight. And my pitch to Chris is, 'The first guy that starts grappling is a *****, so let's not do that. Let's just stand up and just beat the hell out of each other. If we get in a clinching scenario, and somebody wants to throw somebody or whatever, go ahead and do it. But let's not try to finish it on the ground. Let's stand up, and let's bang it out.'"

Davis has suffered just one loss in his past 13 fights: a unanimous-decision defeat to Mike Swick at UFC 85. "The Ultimate Fighter 2" cast member has scored stoppages in 11 of the 13 victories. Davis, a former pro boxer, has been a fixture on the UFC's European cards.

Lytle, meanwhile, has won four of his past six fights. The only losses came to top contenders Josh Koscheck and Thiago Alves. He's gone to decision in just one of his past seven wins.

For some reason I think Lytle takes this one. It wouldn't hurt my feelings if Davis won though.

Davis, Unanimous Decision.

Lytle is extremely tough to finish. No joke.

Lytle throws bombs but doesn't know how to pace himself- I see Davis out working him for a UD.

I think Lytle will win by decision, he has the better ground game and better technical stand up.

Close fight though.
