After four weeks in a row of stellar Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events, the big dog of mixed martial arts (MMA) is taking a week off.
Don't worry though, Maniacs. No need to go into total withdrawal.
On Sat., Oct. 15, Warrior One MMA will keep the good times rolling as W-1 MMA: "Reloaded" takes place at BankUnited Center, located at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida.
The card features a main event between former UFC banger Marcus Davis and Ultimate Fighter (TUF) contestant Chuck O'Neil. In the co-headliner, former XFC Featherweight Champion Luis Palomino will square off against Edson Berto.
Originally, everyone's favorite anarchist, Jeff Monson, was set to take on Gabriel Gonzaga in the headline fight before he withdrew from the event recently. Davis and O'Neil were ready and willing to fill in as the main event of the night.
After losing to Jeremy Stephens at UFC 125 on Jan. 1 in Las Vegas, Nevada, "Irish Hand Grenade" was cut from the UFC and forced to re-invent himself. Davis is currently riding a three-fight win streak, most recently submitting Travis Coyle by guillotine choke at Global Fight League 13: "Heavy Hitters" on Sept. 23 in Portland, Maine.
Davis, who began boxing at the age of 14, has been involved in some classic bloody exchanges during his 28-fight MMA career. He'll be looking to give fans another exciting display of fireworks on Saturday night.
Holding a professional record of 3-5, Couture has often taken criticism for possibly getting attention more for her last name than her actual abilities in the ring and cage. She will be looking to quiet the critics and get her career back on track
