For a guy who made a good living in the UFC by regularly getting the sh*t beaten out of him, Marcus Davis sure is taking his most recent loss hard:
Following the loss Davis took to his Facebook page where he addressed the loss saying, “Sorry all. I’m just not pulling the trigger like I did even five years ago. I have days in the gym where I can’t be touched but days where I’m lethargic. Consistency is key to being a professional fighter. My reactions have slowed. I’m not going to make my decision now until I am with my family but this wouldn’t have happened 10-5 years ago. Time I think has caught up with me. I will be with my wife tomorrow and we will discuss my career. From the bottom of my heart I thank everyone who has ever supported me.”
Much more worrisome than the knockout itself was how long it took Davis to unscramble his eggs afterwards. At 38 years of age, he’s clearly near the end of his fighting career. What he was even doing kickboxing in Ireland to begin with is still a bit of a mystery. It reeks of fighting for the sake of fighting, which is all well and good when you’re a 20 year old kid. Not so much when you’re a grizzled veteran who’s brain is a few concussions away from turning to yogurt.
