Marcus Davis has been on a quick rise up the welterweight ranks of late and at UFC 75 he will travel back across the Atlantic, this time to fight in England against Paul Taylor.
Davis has been working feverishly to build himself up in the growing 170lb division and next weekend he’ll be featured as the swing bout on the second U.K. card to take place this year.
Also joining the show live tonight will be Brandon Vera who is returning to UFC action after a lengthy layoff dealing with management issues, but is now set to fight at UFC 77 against former champ Tim Sylvia.
Vera has long been considered a top contender in the UFC’s heavyweight division and a win over Sylvia would solidify him as a leading candidate to take a shot at Randy Couture’s title.
The heavyweight division in the UFC is definitely the top of the food chain right now, but Josh Barnett is a name that could only make it better. He’ll join MMAWeekly Radio to talk about his comments from this weekend in which he brought up his previous victory over Couture a few years ago.
Josh is still a free agent right now, but fans got a glimpse of the former Pride heavyweight as he cornered Renato “Babalu” Sobral last weekend at UFC 74.
