Marcus Davis: Decision was just business, no plans to retire

by Tristen Critchfield | source: sherdog.com
 

“I haven’t performed my best in the last year and a half, and, therefore, they gotta kick me out to make room for the guys that are performing their best,” he said. “I don’t hold anything against the UFC. I’m still friends with [UFC President] Dana [White] and [matchmaker] Joe Silva and all those guys. It was business. It wasn’t personal at all.”

When Davis does return to the cage, he plans on remaining at 155 pounds for the foreseeable future. While fighting at 170, Davis said he would often endure as much as a 45-pound cut to make weight. The cut to 155 will be much less grueling from what he said is his current weight of 180 pounds.

“I’m not actually entertaining any offers at 70,” he said. “[Lightweight] is honestly where I should have been my entire career, and that’s where I’m gonna be. Right now, it’s not difficult for me maintaining and staying close to that weight.”

He used to lift a lot of very heavy weights (which of course led to nagging injuries) so he would be strong and big enough to compete agaisnt the other 170lbs, he conentrated so much on bulking up that he lost a of flexibility, speed as well as the injuries.Now he does not lift weights at all and has completly changed his diet and is at a more natural weight of around 180, so the cut is easy.

 Why ... I ... don't... even...  "While fighting at 170, Davis said he would often endure as much as a 45-pound cut to make weight. The cut to 155 will be much less grueling from what he said is his current weight of 180 pounds." So for 155 he's starting at 180 (cutting 25 lbs)??? - Believeable I suppose. Sherk does it. But he "cut" 45 lbs to make 170? Starting his camp at 215?? WTF? lol That doesn't seem right. That means he was cutting as much as Rampage...

Yeah that made no sense. I think maybe some numbers were flipped or something, lol.

They were fairly even, Davis ahead before the headbutt caused the cut, it definily changed the fight.
