Marcus is the Roger Huerta of the welterweight division, the UFC is force feeding him to us.
Fitch had wins over Larson, Hironaka, and Alves before they even put him on TV. Marcus had a win over Forrest Petz.
his fight with hironaka was aired... as a matter of fact i was just watching that fight on dvd before replying to this msg.
how is marcus davis being fed to us?
-did ufc plan the fact that him and taylor were going to be the fight of the night?
- his fight with jason tan was originally a prelim but it was aired bcuz it was ko of the night.
- His fight with pete spratt wasn't aired, even though he finished off spratt with a great achilles lock (plus it was an exciting fight).
- the only reason they aired the shonie carter fight was because of shonie not because of marcus davis. Davis dominated him in that fight.
- and his fight with petz wasn't aired.. even tho it was finished quick
fitch is a much better fighter than davis... however davis is a more exciting fighter... which r exactly the kind of fighters that ufc puts on tv. I'm not saying fitch is not exciting or good.. i'm saying davis is more exciting
Davis is going out there, fighting his heart out and has kept improving... you can be disgruntled about fitch not getting enough tv time but don't just come out and say b.s like davis is being pushed in our face. They don't have much to gain by pushing a 35 year old who may never get a title shot.
