Fight of the Day: Marcus Davis vs. Paul Taylor

I saw this one for the first time on UFC Unleashed last night and needed to share. In his fifth UFC fight (at “Champion vs. Champion,” 9/8/07), Marcus Davis was rocked early by a head kick and pounded on the ground to the point where 9 out of 10 refs would have jumped in to stop the fight. Big ups to ref Yves Lavigne, who was able to sense that Marcus wasn’t quite out of it and gave the Irish Hand Grenade a chance to continue. Davis worked his way onto his feet and then on top of Taylor, where he pummeled Taylor from the mount, then transitioned into a slick armbar that earned him the “Submission of the Night” bonus; Davis and Taylor also picked up the “Fight of the Night” bonuses for the effort.

Mike Goldberg line of the fight: “Marcus Davis has…literally fallen in love with elbows.”

Excellent fight. I think a rematch next year will be great saying these guys make it that far.

Literally. I wonder if Goldberg knows what the word means.

I just wish Goldy would stop screaming "It's all over," when any is stopped.

This was a great fight, by the way. I hope Davis gets an upgrade in competition for his next fight. Haven't heard much about the Swick rumor in a while.

I remember watching this fight and it was the best fight of the night. I thought the IHG was going to lose but props to Yves for not stomping it and making it a great fight.
