Former UFC welterweight 'The Irish Hand Grenade' Marcus Davis returned to his spiritual home of Ireland to fight Mark Casserly for the ISKA Light Cruiserweight kickboxing world championship in Dublin Sunday night. Davis lost via first round KO from a right high kick.

The experiece has given him opportunity to reflect, via facebook. Among many others, Davis's son and manager respond.


Irish Hand Grenade
Sorry all.. Im just not pulling the trigger like I did even 5 years ago. I have days in the gym where i cant be touched but days where I'm lethargic. Consistency is key to being a professional fighter. My reactions have slowed. I'm not going to make my decision now until I am with my family but this wouldn't have happened 10-5 years ago. Time I think has caught up with me. I will be with my wife tomorrow and we will discuss my career. From the bottom of my heart I thank everyone who has ever supported me... God bless
Marcus


Duncan Davis
we all love u dad just hurry home back to us!


Joe Cav
Marcus theres nothing to be sorry about! You have been my good friend, a role model to me and my favorite fighter ever, you have accomplished so much and I have been blessed to be able to watch and come along for the ride. Keep your head up. We all love you win or lose... it doesn't matter! Talk to you when you get home

Read entire Facebook...

Davis is 2-3 over his last five MMA fights, most recently having recently lost a split decision to TUF veteran Chuck O'Neil at W-1 MMA 7 in Florida.

the time of the fight wasn't much to take a lot of inferences from, but Marcus looked good until that kick landed, and by the looks of it that kick would have put a lot of people down

He lives part of the year in Ireland and owns a house there, he travels there several times a year, so yes its his spirtual home.
How're you handling this, Calo? I know this must be hard for you. Phone Post

He looked good against Jeremy Stephens too before he got blasted. I am in no position to say what's best for him but I hope he makes the right decision for himself and his family.

Damn.... Gotta say Marcus looked a little back to old form, But got caught. IMO he would be way better off in boxing. He's too short legged for kicking and his classical boxing movement is what seemed to lead to that head kick. Great short fight, props to both fighters! Phone Post

He dropped his hand on his jab when he was reaching. More technique thing than age. Phone Post

Best of luck, Marcus. You had an awesome run, especially considering your age when you got into MMA.
