Jeremy Stephens wants to welcome Marcus Davis to lightweight division

source: mmajunkie.com
 

The UFC lightweight on Thursday took to Twitter for his next career request: a meeting with Marcus Davis (17-7 MMA, 9-5 UFC), who on Tuesday told MMAjunkie.com that he's moving down from welterweight to Stephens' territory.

"Please give me that fight!" Stephens (17-6 MMA, 5-5 UFC) wrote.

Stephens and Guillard brought their most recent octagon appearance to fruition when they publicly requested a meeting.

The two lightweight sluggers were subsequently booked for a meeting at UFC 119. While most of the MMA community expected the fight to be a barnburner, the matchup failed to deliver fireworks. In the end, it was Guillard who had his hand raised by way of split decision.

Stephens blamed the lack of action on the gameplan of "The Young Assassin," an opinion he made clear in Thursday's request.

"No disrespect, but I don't think Marcus will run like my last opponent," he said.

The loss snapped a two-fight win streak for Stephens, who now trains at Victory MMA in San Diego.

Yeah, at 36, Davis might not be quick enough to deal with guys like Stephens at this point.

 Davis wasnt even quick for a 170 pounder.  Hes going to get smashed by Stephens.

Kenflo cuts from 177. I always thought Marcus Davis was a bit short for 170 and had some problems with reach. I was always skeptical of the decision to stack on weight instead of dropping to 155. I'm excited for this.

It will all depend on how he deals with the cut.

Smart move for Davis. Get those FOTN checks. He already fought the guys who only bang at 70. at 55 he's got:Rematch with GuillardSpencer FisherSiverStoutetc
