Marcus Davis facing new opponent at MFC 29

UFC veteran Marcus Davis still has plans to fight next month when Canada’s Maximum Fighting Championship ventures to Windsor, Ontario – they’ve just been slightly altered. With original opponent Kajan Johnson forced to withdraw due to a shoulder injury suffered during training it now looks like “The Irish Hand Grenade” will instead see action against Curtis Demarce at the April 8 event.

News of the change was first reported by MMAWeekly.

Davis’ crew at Sityodtong were likely pleased with the replacement from a stylistic standpoint as both Johnson and Demarce are primarily known for their grappling rather than vastly different to prepare for.

Demarce is coming off a split decision loss in February at MFC 28 after winning seven straight fights. He holds an overall record of 10-8 with six victories coming via submission.

MFC 29 will mark the promotional debut for Davis who recently parted ways with the UFC after a five-year run in the organization. The 17-8 North Easterner holds past wins in the Octagon over Shonie Carter, Paul Taylor, Paul Kelly, and Chris Lytle.

Fans can tune in to catch their lightweight match-up live on HDNet.

    Marcus should have this one in the bag. No disrespect to Curtis, but Marcus has faced, and beaten higher caliber opponents and should have more ways to win this.

    Good to see Marcus still fighting, but if he doesn’t do something about all that scar tissue he’s gonna keep getting cut up in every fight and those cuts will cost him wins.
