Marcus Davis thought Ben Saunders 'was going to be a very easy fight' at UFC 106


The game plan originally was to jump right on him, to give him no room at all, get in his face and smother everything and overwhelm him with speed on the inside. But I wasn’t able to do that ... I’ve worked with guys that were 6-foot-3, 6-foot-4, but he just seemed much taller. I don’t know why, but his reach and his height just seemed to be much taller. To be honest, I thought it was going to be a very easy fight and I was completely wrong. That was shocking to me. I did think it was going to be easy because I felt as though I had enough experience and because he was so thin, it was going to be easy to overpower him. I don’t know what’s next. I have no idea. I don’t know what the UFC is going to do.
A dejected Marcus Davis reflects on his losing performance at the UFC 106 event from the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas, which sent him tumbling down the list of eligible welterweight title contenders. "The Irish Hand Grenade" also came up short against Dan Hardy back at UFC 99 and may have trouble selling himself as a legitimate threat despite reinventing himself after a failed stint on The Ultimate fighter Season 2. Can the 36-year-old Davis make one last run with the big dogs in the 170-pound division? Or has the curtain begun to fall on the career of the former boxer?

What's next for the Irish hand grenade?

I like Marcus Davis, they better not cut him. You win some, you lose some, and Marcus is a standup guy.

I doubt they'll cut him anytime soon.

They need him for their UK shows.

I don't think they will or should cut him but they don't really NEED him for UK shows. With Dan Hardy and all the TUF guys they got a good talent pool gathering.

Maybe 'need' isnt the proper word but he's a good guy to have for their UK shows and other UFNs/free cards. And he always comes to fight.

After watching what Saunders did to Wolf with the clinch using his height and knees I don't know why Davis would look past him like that...

I was surprised too.

Davis will be back. He won't ever be a top contender, but definitely can produce some FOTNs.

Douglas/Tyson syndrome.

Well that wasn't very smart of Marcus Davis.

Alex_DeLarge 11-29-2009 10:09 PM

Can't stand this guy. Have him fight AJ to send his ass out of the UFC.

This is the same guy that thought his decision loss against Hardy was so bad he wanted to "fight" the judging, and thought everyone agreed with him. Such a shitface he is.
