Marcus Davis and Dan Hardy engaged in a long, drawn-out war of words prior to their fight at UFC 99 on Saturday, and Davis now says that verbal battle helped Hardy win their physical battle in the Octagon.

If anyone has a link to this fight (not RUTUBE cause it doen't play on my PC) I will give you mad props. I picked Dan and i thought he did great but I admit I thought the decision could have gone either way. I want to watch it again with an unbias opinion and see if Marcus won as decicively as he says. I dont mind seeing it again. This fight made me a big fan of The Outlaw. He is awesome.

ESPN must have some interesting stats then, Fight metric had it almost even with a slight edge to Hardy, and the 10 point must decision to Davis.

I dont know how anyone could say either won every category of the fight.

Hats off to Davis for admitting Hardy got into his head, that can't be easy for a pro fighter to admit.

i still think marcus should have won
that's why home advantage is a strength especially for over seas

Marcus lost fair in square. He needs to put this loss behind him and just move on.
