Marcus Davis Comments On Being Called Out By Chris Lytle

Following his UFC 89 bout Chris Lytle called out fellow welterweight Marcus Davis for a bout when the UFC goes to Ireland in January. Both fighters were victorious at 89. Davis comments on Lytle to Yahoo! UK:

“I don’t mind Chris calling me out, it’s part of the game. I certainly didn’t take offense. He had warned me beforehand that he was going to do it, so I don’t consider it disrespectful or anything. I like Chris and think he is a great guy but I don’t know whether he deserves a fight against me. People always say that Chris is the `gatekeeper’ to our division, but I think that I am past the gate at the moment. I have spoken to a few people who have told me that they actually think Paul Taylor won that fight against Chris. I beat Paul in one round (in September 2007), so I’m just not sure. But, of course, if that is the fight that the UFC want, then I am more than happy.”
