L.C. Davis added to Sunday’s WEC card

L.C. Davis is the latest former IFL fighter to find a new home with Zuffa, according to a report by

Davis, who competed as a featherweight in the IFL, will be fighting for the WEC on Aug. 3 against Hiroyuki Takaya. Davis is replacing Cub Swanson, who is off the card due to a broken hand sustained during training.

Davis is a product of legendary MMA trainer Pat Miletich’s Miletich Fighting Systems in Davenport, Iowa. He is 10-1 overall and posted a respectable 3-1 record in the IFL. Davis began his career with a 9-0 record before suffering his first loss during the IFL’s World Grand Prix finals this past December after submitting to an armbar in the first round against current IFL featherweight champion Wagnney Fabiano.

Takaya is 9-5-1 overall, according to Sherdog’s fight finder, and he is 0-1 in the WEC after losing his debut at WEC 32 this past February following a first round TKO against Leonard Garcia. He holds notable victories over the likes of Hatsu Hioki and Antonio Carvalho as well as notable losses to Andre “Dida” Amade, Gesias “JZ” Calvancante, Genki Sudo, and Gilbert Melendez.

The WEC’s show this Sunday will be headlined by three title matches, with WEC light heavyweight champion Brian Stann defending against Steve Cantwell; WEC welterweight champion Carlos Condit taking on Hiromitsu Miura; and Jamie Varner making his first-ever title defense of the WEC lightweight belt in a bout against Marcus Hicks.

    This is gonna be a great card. This will also be my first time seeing the WEC in HD. Is the broadcast better?

  • JOe K. says:

    I can’t wait for this. I’m so glad Grispi is on the main card.

    Will they show the undercard?

  • matt says:

    JOe, they usually end up showing up more fights than just the main card. You can expect the Stann fight to end in the first. and Condit isn’t going to decision. The Hicks/Varner fight is gonna be a blast. I’m pretty sure we’ll see atleast 7 fights.

  • Jeremy says:

    Yeah this should be a fantastic card all around, which is basically like every WEC card these days. Amazingly the one in September is probably going to be even better, several new guys debuting on the show as well.

    According the not only LC Davis but also John Franchi has now signed with the WEC.
