UFC welterweight “Irish Hand Grenade” Marcus Davis (15-4) told Fighters.com that he hasn’t heard anything yet about a possible match-up versus “Lights Out” Chris Lytle (26-16-5) at UFC 93 in Dublin 17 January.
But, the lack of a contract hasn’t stopped Davis from trash talking Lytle to Eurosport.
“I don’t know whether [Lytle] 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,” Davis told Eurosport Friday.
Davis added, “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, so I’m just not sure.”
Davis confirmed he will fight in Dublin and said, “If [Lytle] is the fight that the UFC wants, then I am more than happy.”
