Marcus Davis

When was the last time "the irish hand grenade" fought in the US? They've had him fight in the UK for just about every UK show.

I think it's kind of funny. How do you guys think he's going to do against lyttle, who imo is not such easy competition?

I think that Marcus Davis is a very technical striker compared to Lyttle.

I'm pretty sure both guys will stand and trade (typical of Lyttle) and if it really happens I see Lyttle having alot of trouble. Davis is moving very well standing up, Lyttle doesnt throw anything unusual, hes more of a brawler and he does not use his feet often.

I think Davis will win in a dominant fashion

Supposedly both guys have agreed to stand and trade, I can't remember what they called it but some promise to each other not to take the fight to the ground. If this holds true I think it's going to be a rough night for Lytle.

But fortunately for Lytle, I think he's the kind of fighter who can lose 4 or out 6 and the UFC will still resign him and I for one am happy about that.

As for you original question, it's been awhile... where did he fight Swick... that was stateside wasn't it?

Yeah, I hear you. If Lyttle stands in the pocket and starts winging wild punches like he did in his last fight, he's gonna have some trouble; unless he connects with a good one You know that can happen to anybody

I agree with r00kie's assessment. Two guys who like to standup, (though Lytle should definitely take this to the ground) Davis is more technical, Lytle will keep throwing and will hang in there, as he's a seriously tough SOB.

If Lytle wasn't in such bad financial situation, he wouldn't have to worry so much about going for that FOTN bonus by standing and slugging.

I think if Lytle wanted to, he could win this fight by taking Davis down and win a decision. When do we ever see Lytle do that though?

BrianRclover, the Swick fight was UFC 85 in the UK, I went

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

I think Davis is going to outstrike Lytle, badly.

Davis via TKO by the 2nd.

lytle's striking isn't that great, and marcus has excellent striking...some of the best at 170....

if i was lytle, i'd shoot immediately

That's what I was thinking, but I've seen Davis pull some slick ones on the ground. And after seeing Lytle get raped on the mat (granted it was Kos) in his last ground war I'm not sure that Lytle will prevail there either.

I think this match is a given for Marcus.

Lytle has such underrated jiu jitsu.

I'm quite confident that he would beat Davis on the ground.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED
