After UFC welterweight Marcus Davis (16-4 MMA, 6-2 UFC) saw his 11-fight win streak snapped at UFC 85, many fans were critical of the performance of "The Irish Hand Grenade."

As MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) previously reported, it was nearly a month after that loss to Mike Swick before Davis would comment on a severe shoulder injury that hampered his performance that evening.

"I don't like to talk a lot about injuries and stuff like that because I think they can be excuses," Davis said while a guest on a recent episode of TAGG Radio (www.taggradio.com), the official radio partner of MMAjunkie.com. "Because nobody fights 100 percent."

When you think of him from TUF 2 he has to be one of the most improved fighters in the UFC. He basically started his UFC carear as a boxer.

Its amazing how far he has come IMO.

^^^ Agreed. He's probably one of the most improved fighters since appearing on TUF.

He's also a really nice guy - spent a lot of time with the fans at 85.

His fight with Paul Kelly will be a good fight. Im thinking Kelly by UD.
