After 15 fights, four fight-night bonuses, a spot on the organization's reality series, former welterweight title contention, and a handful of high-profile international fights, Marcus Davis received his UFC walking papers following a UFC 125 loss to Jeremy Stephens.

Davis' manager, Joe Cavallaro, today confirmed the release with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The 37-year-old will continue fighting in MMA professionally, and he'll do so at 155 pounds with the hopes of getting back to the UFC.

 He was not going to win a decision, 2 judges had the fight 19-19 after 2 and Stephens was winning the third.  He was going to lose a split decision.

WTH are you talking about? He fought the exact opposite of that. He stayed in trading range with Stephens when he had the fight already won. He was dominating the clinch game early and could've won a decision if he chose that strategy or the Jackson strategy of jabbing and dancing in the distance.
