It seems like Marcus Davis got his wish and will fight in the UFC’s next venture to Ireland after all. The former professional boxer will reportedly clash with Chris Lytle in a welterweight bout that will take place at UFC 93 on January 17 according to MMA Junkie.
Bout agreements have apparently been distributed but have not yet been returned. However both fighters have verbally agreed to fight. Both Lytle and Davis have discussed their desire to fight each other in the past and both made a mention of it once again following their respective victories at UFC 89 last month.
Davis recently bounced back from an unanimous decision loss to Mike Swick in June to submit England native Paul Kelly at UFC 89 on October 18 while Lytle earned “Fight of the Night” honors after defeating Paul Taylor in a three-round war on the feet at the same show.
