Quoteworthy:

"I know a lot of interest has come from the U.K., so we are talking to people over there. I don't know what's going to happen. I haven't performed my best in the last year and a half, and, therefore, they gotta kick me out to make room for the guys that are performing their best," he said. "I don't hold anything against the UFC. I'm still friends with [UFC President] Dana [White] and [matchmaker] Joe Silva and all those guys. It was business. It wasn't personal at all. I'm not actually entertaining any offers at 70. [Lightweight] is honestly where I should have been my entire career, and that's where I'm gonna be. Right now, it's not difficult for me maintaining and staying close to that weight."

Don't expect Marcus Davis to retire after his third round knockout loss to Jeremy Stephens at UFC 125. The popular brawler was doing rather well in his lightweight debut, controlling the action for two and a half rounds before a thunderous punch from "Lil Heahten" sent him crashing to the canvas with a pink slip waiting for him when he got back up. "The Irish Hand Grenade" knows his release from the world's largest fight promotion was just business and he'll have to work his way back to the big leagues of MMA. He's entertaining a few offers at the moment and says from here on out, he'll be fighting at 155-pounds. Anyone think Davis deserves a second chance in the UFC? How many wins until he should be invited back, if ever? Sound off, Maniacs.
