——————————————————————————————-

‘The Irish Hand Grenade’ Marcus Davis was expected to meet Kajan Johnson in his Maximum Fighting Championships debut, but a shoulder injury has forced Johnson off the card. Curtis Demarce steps in to face Davis on the televised main card 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.

Curtis Demarce recently lost a very close match-up against former UFC ‘Ultimate Fighter’ alum Richie Whitson at MFC 28 last month. The two engaged in an exciting, back-and-forth fight, but in the end it was Whitson who eked out the spit decision victory. The loss snapped a seven-fight win streak for Demarce.

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.
