UFC veteran Marcus Davis has found a new home. ‘The Irish Hand Grenade’ signed with the Maximum Fighting Championships last week, and was announced by MFC President Mark Pavelich during their broadcast on Friday. According to the latest press release, Marcus Davis is expected to meet Kajan Johnson in his promotional debut at MFC 29.
The event takes place on April 8th at the Colosseum at Caesars Windsor in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. MFC 29 will be Ontario, Canada’s first sanctioned mixed martial arts event.
Marcus Davis returns to action for the first time since being released by the UFC earlier this year. After a surprising 8-1 start to his UFC career, he finished just 1-4 before being handed his release. Davis seemed to struggle with the taller welterweights in the division, so at UFC 125, he dropped down to lightweight to face Jeremy Stephens. Despite a strong start, Davis eventually fell victim to a third round knockout loss.
‘Ragin’ Kajan Johnson has won six of his last seven fights, including victories over former Shark Fights featherweight champion Douglas Evans, Strikeforce veteran Zach Light, and Ryan Healy. Johnson’s last defeat came against Ryan Machan via first round submission at MFC 23 in December of 2009.
