Marcus Davis wants to pound Dan Hardy's face into dust at UFC 99

"All I will say is I told Joe Silva to make this happen for June 13th in Germany -- neutral ground for both of us. So it is in Joe Silva's control. This whole 'calling me out' thing started at the Q&A in London when his manager sent up a guy to ask me if I would fight Dan and I said lets do it. I think he is a talented fighter but I also think I will pound his face into dust. Anyone who thinks he's more technical then me -- you are allowed to your opinion even though it is wrong. I fight each fight differently because YOU HAVE TO. This fight wont look like the others just as the others don't look like the ones before them."

Marcus Davis is not backing down from a challenge that Dan Hardy issued following a knockout win over Rory Markham at UFC 95: "Sanchez vs. Stevenson" this past weekend. "The Outlaw" mentioned wanting to fight "The Irish Hand Grenade" numerous times in his post-fight interviews. It seems as though his rhetoric may have worked -- Davis told UFC matchmaker Joe Silva to set it up for UFC 99 at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany, on June 13. Sounds like a plan. A good one.
