"People have been bugging me about it forever. Everybody's been saying ‘you're too short, you haven't got the reach, why aren't you fighting at lightweight?' And I heard that all the time. And I was like, it might be because I walk around at 210, and cutting that 60 pounds might be kinda difficult. That's like a small human child. So it just seemed impossible to me. And my whole UFC career, it's like clockwork - every time I get on that scale five days before my fights at 170, I'm 185 pounds. I cut that 15 those last five days. I never thought it would be possible (to make 155). When people see me at that weigh-in, I think they're gonna be really shocked. They're gonna look at me and they'll all freak out. Now I'm the biggest 155er on the block."
When Marcus Davis hits the cage to take on Jeremy Stephens at UFC 125 on Jan. 1 in Las Vegas, he will be making his debut in the 155-pound division. According to the "Celtic Warrior," he used to walk around at 210 pounds before cutting a massive amount of weight just to get to 170. Now that he's got his diet and health in order, it's time to detonate a few "Irish Hand Grenades" on the lightweight division before he calls it a career. At the ripe old age of 37, he knows he's not getting any younger so the time to make something happen is now. The good thing in all this? He will be the self-proclaimed "biggest 155-pounder on the block." Who thinks Davis can make a run in the crowded lightweight division? Get after it, Maniacs.
