"My training has just gone through the roof. ... My mind went from contemplating retirement to now I'm looking at making a run in the 155-pound division.

"Things have changed dramatically for me really quick."

Davis, who said he was under 170 this week, says while he will only briefly touch 155 pounds for the weigh in, he feels good in his new body.

And unlike other fighters who can look emaciated in cutting to a new weight class, Davis says he will look natural at the weigh-in.

"I think I'm going to look like I belong at 155," he said.

Always liked Marcus. Hopefully he can have a lot of success at 155. Please let him have done a practice weight cut before he actually fights just to make sure he can do it successfully. WAR Davis! Phone Post

He'll get far, unless somebody hits him once in the face opening up every single cut he's ever had.

So...maybe not.

He will not get close to the title.
The problem with Marcus is, even though his striking is phenominal, his mma game is just not developed enough and so he depends on sprawl and brawl too much and thus his attention is so focused on not getting taken down.
That is when he starts getting out struck against anyone that wants to strike with him, that has a decent ground game.
Case and point...Nate Diaz, Hardy, Swick...
Paul Taylor rocked him on the feet, again his world is the stand up, and he caught him with an arm bar because Taylor had no subs in his game and very poor defense.
All of his losses are to fighters that chose to strike with him and that is his strong point.
His best chances are against strikers with no ground game to TD to worry about, or ground fighters with no stand up. I think he has a chance to beat stephens and it will be a good fight to watch, but that is only because Stephens shooses to stand as well and will likely not go for a TD....but you never know, maybe he will and pound marcus on the ground for a bit then stand up and rock him on the feet when he is worried about the TD.

Marcus doesn't have much going for him other than toughness and decent standup. And the 155ers have better standup than the 170ers, on average. He will make no noise in the lightweight division.

The fact that he just got obliterated in his own area of "expertise" by a guy who lost three of his last four at 155 doesn't say much for his title chances.

 Davis is a good guy but he still has a lot of holes in his style to even reach contender status. I don't see him getting close to the LW title.

Jetster - wow does anyone have a pic of Kos so we can compare

 not even close. Davis' eye was 10 times worse. He looked like Fernardo Vargas after Shane Mosley fight

No offense to him, but a title run is not happening at 155. He's going to be way, way too slow to compete there.

Ouch, those are nasty eyes.
Are those all broken orbitals after they blew their nose?
Doesn't look like Kos blew his nose.

thanks for the wars you've given us Marcus but I think that Dan Hardy was your kryptonite and since that loss, you haven't been the same - although, I'll tune in to watch and support you, please don't get like Jens Pulver and not know when it's time...

I never really liked davis, his hands are nice and full of knockout power, but if your not irish how can you call yourself the irish hand grenade? I hope he does go 155 so someone like spencerfisher or frankie can sit him down.

I love Marcus, but I think he is way past a title shot, especially at 155. With young guns like Edgar and Maynard and all the WEC guys pouring in I don't think he will get anywhere near a title. He may have some great wars left, but top contender status is far out of reach at this point unless he has had a miraculous transformation at this weight.

Maybe less vitamin S would make the weight cut easy. he is a good size for 55 but just not dynamic or athletic . remember the posedown /ufc just bleed face he did when he won that fight ??
