Marcus “The Irish Hand Grenade” Davis has signed a new four-fight deal with the UFC, according to a source in his camp.Davis, 36, made his UFC debut on the second season of “The Ultimate Fighter” in August 2005 and has made 12 Octagon appearances since emerging from the reality show, earning an 8-4 record.The source said Davis was targeting a spring return to action, though he has not been approached with a specific opponent or date.Davis is still healing from his last fight, a knockout loss to Ben Saunders at UFC 106, the first time he’d completely lost consciousness in 19 years of professional fighting. Prior to that, he lost a hotly contested decision to welterweight contender Dan Hardy at UFC 99.

You gotta keep your gate keepers around. Otherwise how are we supposed to know who's good?

Good call a think it cud be somthing marcus cud think about cause to be fair he not going to have a run at the title.I agree with what people are saying with the gate keeper bit but as a fighter and probly his last real push in his career goes cause he not getting any younger now.He shud may be try droping down to LW It wud be interesting to see him at 155 if he cud make the weight.

No way in hell he makes 155. He was about as big as Hardy when they fought and did anybody see how huge Hardy looked next to Swick? Swick used to fight at 205.

I just don't see it.
