Marcus Davis given a challenge

You know, I can’t even remember who the fuck won Swick vs Burkman. Oh, the fight finder says Swick won it. Well okay then. It still seems like he’s getting punished for his boring ass performance by being matched up against a very dangerous low rung opponent in Marcus Davis. Davis has been quietly racking up an 11 win streak, knocking out and submitting a lot of his opponents in the first round. Swick? Not so much lately. His last three fights have gone to decision.

Perhaps this is the battle for the moniker ‘Quick’. It’s certainly a better nickname than ‘The Irish Hand Grenade’, and Davis has done enough to earn it if he beats Swick outside of judge’s decision. This really is a great chance to see if Davis is really good or just ‘really good at beating up lesser talent.’ As for Swick, he’s expected to win this one … if he does, no one will really give him much props over it. But if he loses….

    Swick is favored? if the odds are actually in his favor I’d bet on Irish Hand Pump in a second. I assume they’ll make this fight like… -120 / -130 or something stupid. If Irish Hand Cream has the odds, bet the farm.

    my brother wants the kenflo/j-lau fight to raise the odds…the loser has to take the other guy’s nickname.
    i think swick-davis could possibly end up a FOY candidate if both bring it. and davis doesn’t let anyone go easy.

  • Geoff says:

    I don’t think this is being made a gimmie fight for Swick, most people on the forums don’t remember the last time Swick was impressive and are giving the odds to Davis.

  • Geoffr0y says:

    Yeah I’m still associating Mike with furious, fast punching combos and flying swickotines in my head. His last few fights have been fairly dissapointing. I’m glad he got the decision over burkman though, deserved or not, cause I think Mike has lots of potential if he brings it. The Peoples Champ… Not so much.

  • Hattori Hanzo says:

    Swick really should had stayed at 185 especially noting the lack of depth at the weight. Marcus Davis will come out aggressive and attempt to overwhelm him. A win for Marcus would mean a big step up the ladder and an eventual title shot with maybe two more wins.

  • Lifer says:

    agree with #5. he was tiny at 170 and stated himself he fucked up his weightcutting and actually got too close to 170 before cutting.

  • Teufel says:

    Swick vs Davis… nice!

  • dignan says:

    I hear Swick changed fighting styles and has been training secrectly in Israel. I believe he might might have some new weapon in his asenal, Krav Maga maybe.

  • Omomatta says:

    Iranian hand job via KO. Swick was too weak in his last fight. I think Davis will overwhelm him.
