HDNet Fight of the Week: Marcus Davis vs. Curtis Demarce at MFC 29

by MMAjunkie.com Staff on Jun 08, 2011 at 1:25 pm ET

Once on the verge of UFC title contention, fan favorite Marcus Davis received his UFC walking papers following back-to-back losses earlier this year.

But the 37-year-old former pro boxer – who completely revamped his MMA game after a short stint on “The Ultimate Fighter 2” – wasn’t ready to call it quits.

So in his first post-UFC fight back in April, the Team Sityodtong fighter headed north of the border for a meeting with Canadian lightweight Curtis Demarce at MFC 29.

Each week HDNet and MMAjunkie.com release a new and exclusive fight from the ever-growing HDNet Fights video library. Stunning knockouts, slick submissions, shocking finishes and legendary brawls are the norm for this weekly feature.

Davis vs. Demarce is no exception.

Davis (17-8 at the time) looked to snap out of a 1-4 skid in his return to Canada. Despite a series of setbacks, he was still one of the card’s biggest draws. And against Demarce (10-8), he gave a veteran a shot at an elusive signature career win. In fact, with a victory, Demarce could continue a fairytale turnaround of his career. After losing seven of his first nine fights, Demarce won seven of his next eight and looked to sustain the run with a victory over Davis.

So settle in and enjoy one of the vault’s longer and most hard-fought bouts.

And don’t forget that you can catch Davis back in action at MFC 30 on Friday. He takes on fellow UFC vet Pete Spratt on the HDNet-televised main card.
