MMAWeekly.com is reporting that Marcus “The Irish Hand Grenade” Davis has signed a new four fight deal with the UFC.
Marcus “The Irish Hand Grenade” Davis has signed a new four-fight deal with the UFC, according to a source in his camp.
Davis, 36, made his UFC debut on the second season of “The Ultimate Fighter” in August 2005 and has made 12 Octagon appearances since emerging from the reality show, earning an 8-4 record.
The source said Davis was targeting a spring return to action, though he has not been approached with a specific opponent or date.
Davis is still healing from his last fight, a knockout loss to Ben Saunders at UFC 106, the first time he’d completely lost consciousness in 19 years of professional fighting. Prior to that, he lost a hotly contested decision to welterweight contender Dan Hardy at UFC 99.
This is only the second time in Davis’ career that he has faced back to back losses. The last time Davis dealt with the situation was back in 2004. There are no immediate plans for Davis’ return in the organization and no opponent has been rumored.
