Marcus Davis vs. Nate Diaz Slated for UFC 118 in Boston

We may have supported the idea of a Boston vs. New York rivalry-match between Marcus Davis and Phil Baroni at UFC 118, but this could work out even better. According to multiple sources, Davis has verbally agreed to take on Nate Diaz at the August 28th event in Boston. The Irish Hand Grenade saved his job last weekend at UFC 113 with his second-round TKO of Jonathan Goulet (who has been fired again, by the way). Meanwhile, Diaz is coming off his whipping of Rory Markham in his welterweight debut at UFC 111, which followed a 1-3 stretch at lightweight. There might be one hitch in the plan, however — Diaz’s involvement in last month’s brawl at Strikeforce: Nashville. As MMA Junkie writes: 

Six people who participated in the CBS-televised brawl await possible suspension and/or fines from the Tennessee Athletic Commission, though their names have yet to be officially released. A commission meeting scheduled for Thursday in Nashville was delayed by massive flooding that’s submerged much of the city’s downtown area. The meeting tentatively has been rescheduled for May 27. If Diaz is held responsible for his part in the brawl, the TAC could fine him up to $250,000, though he could appeal the fine and delay its enactment.

UFC 118 will be headlined by Penn vs. Edgar II, and will very likely feature James Toney’s UFC debut against Randy Couture; Kenny Florian vs. Gray Maynard is also expected for the card.

I'm pretty sure those were glamour shots his mom took in her youth.

FYI, if you're not familiar with David Lynch, go watch Twin Peaks-Fire Walk With Me and/or Blue Velvet. Interesting, to say the least. Not great, imo, by any means, but interesting.

Marcus looks around his new living room and wonders if he hired the wrong interior designer

@ eyeheart

see? mad.

interesting way of dealing with others opinions....

Diaz takes this. I don't know what you are talking about with the bros interviews. I find them hilarious. Something refreshing about throwing all the bullshit out the window and just saying let's fight! That's it! Fuck all this hollywood shit...when I get in the cage with you you are about to be in a FIGHT.
El Guapo- May 13, 2010 at 11:04 am
Just a hunch, but NateGetsIrate if that fine holds up..

"Diaz Defuses Hand Grenade" screams the headline. Actually, no, scratch that. "Mumbles Gets Choked Out" is more like it.

@ VisitingDeadAnc

I'm not mad at all. Interesting way of dealing with me pointing out how stupid your complaint suggesting I am mad. Ha.

(Shirt ripping)

I got banned for saying this on junkie. Thanks CP.

@ eyeheartmma

Geez. That midget dancing scene was creepy. Especially after staying awake all night and watching it with no sound on. Not sure I could handle it with audio right now. Thanks, BenG.

@ Almost North

Thank you so much. That imagery was perfect.

Phil "The Long Island Rent Boy" Baroni does NOT represent NYC. He is a greasy fucking skidmark of a man with two things left in his career: "JACK" and "SHIT."

While he lives in NJ, at least Renzo Gracie teaches and works in NYC. Christ, Matt Serra is more of a "New York Bad Ass" than Baroni.
eyeheartmma- May 13, 2010 at 8:26 am
Yeah!! who cares that they come to fight every fight. That their fights are exciting whether they win or lose..and have been like that for many years....
who cares that they come to finish fights...for real....

whats important is how they interview!
(end sarcasm)
PortlandMMA- May 13, 2010 at 8:22 am
yes, the raw hilarity that ensues with molestation jokes.
Smitty- May 13, 2010 at 8:18 am
^^^ Now that's some funny shit!
VisitingDeadAncestors- May 13, 2010 at 8:15 am
someone please destroy either of these Diaz d-bags.

they both interview like children that were just molested, all awkward and shit.
eyeheartmma- May 13, 2010 at 8:11 am
WAR Diaz!
Going take a wild guess that Nate Diaz won't give two shits if anything he does rubs the irish hand grenade the wrong way...or not. Marcus doesn't want to get all bad ass on a Diaz brother though, would be a bad idea for him.
Almost North- May 13, 2010 at 7:59 am
Baseball players have legal teams and the most powerful union in pro sports. Diaz has a stash of the chronic and some unintelligible homies. Still I'm guessing this fine doesn't cross 20k. Just a hunch
Dante- May 13, 2010 at 7:58 am
@Almost North - Hardy is a goofball, and Davis got super heated about it. Diaz is a total cunt, and it's going to rub Davis way wrong.
PortlandMMA- May 13, 2010 at 7:55 am
Damn I don't agree with what Nate did...oh yeah I do, but $250,000? Dudes in baseball with 100 million dollar contracts don't get fined that much for shit.
Smitty- May 13, 2010 at 7:55 am
Never watched it in my life. Am I missing out?
Almost North- May 13, 2010 at 7:54 am

Like he didn't put up with Dan Hardy's shit?
