Marcus Davis Deserves a Shot

It is time for the UFC to give Marcus Davis a shot at being a contender. The guy is too talented to be wasted on the back end of cards taking on lesser fighters. He deserves a chance to put himself into the title picture, by facing a Welterweight contender. Some names that would make sense: Diego Sanchez, Jon Fitch, Yoshiyuki Yoshida, Karo Parisyan.

In the past two years he has fought 6 times (winning 5 with stoppages in each). You are pretty much guaranteed to get an entertaining fight out of him. I don't see why he does not deserve a chance to go head to head with the presumed top guys. Instead it seems likely he will be matched up with Chris Lytle. Another mid-card fight with another mid-card fighter.

I agree; I was thinking the same thing. He isn't getting any younger either. He has experience and is still clearly in great shape. Congrats Marcus!

Liddell was 34 when he started the big win streak.
