Davis vs. Diaz considered for UFC 118 in Boston

source: mmajunkie.com

The "Irish Hand Grenade" got his wish to fight in Beantown.

Not long after Marcus Davis (17-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) told MMAjunkie.com Radio that UFC officials were trying to get him a spot on the UFC 118 fight card, Nate Diaz (12-5 MMA, 7-3 UFC) has answered the call to fight him at the East Coast event.

Sources close to the promotion today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the two have verbally agreed to the fight with bout agreements expected to be signed shortly.

UFC 118 is expected to take place Aug. 28 at Boston's TD Garden; it'll be the first UFC event to be held in Massachusetts since the sport received official sanctioning earlier this year. A lightweight title rematch between newly minted champion Frankie Edgar and former champion B.J. Penn headlines the event.

Not sure if Nate can make 55 anymore. You may be thinking of the fact that he fought Markham at 185 due to weight cutting problems? Now he's going down to 170.I got Diaz to shred marcus's face in this one, and IMO he deserves it for some of his classless comments in the past
