Lytle vs. Davis needs to Happen

Originally posted by the Herald Bulletin

I saw on an Internet mixed martial arts news site that Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight contender Marcus Davis said he didn’t know if a fight with Indianapolis’ Chris Lytle would be worth his time.

Following their respective wins last month at UFC 89: Bisping vs. Leben from Manchester, England, both Davis and Lytle made appeals to UFC management to be put on the card for January’s UFC 93 event in Dublin, Ireland.

Davis, nicknamed “The Irish Hand Grenade,” is a wildly popular fighter in the United Kingdom. So much so that the native of Bangor, Maine, has been cheered by fans against combatants from England and France, so an appeal to UFC President Dana White was a natural move for him.

Indianapolis’ Lytle not only asked to be placed on the card in Dublin, he called out Davis to be his opponent at the show. Both fighters come from a boxing background, making a matchup between the two strikers a potentially exciting standup battle.
