Hard-hitting (and crowd-pleasing) welterweights, Marcus Davis and Phil Baroni, have verbally agreed to throw leather at UFC 111 from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on March 27, 2010.

The promotion has made no official announcements about the 170-pound match up or the actual pay-per-view (PPV) event at this time; however, that's expected to change very soon.

More on this breaking news in a bit.

UFC 111 is expected to feature a 170-pound title defense by promotion superstar Georges St. Pierre as "Rush" answers the call of British striker Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy. Heavyweights Frank Mir

and Shane Carwin
are also expected to collide in an interim title match while Brock Lesnar recovers from recent surgery.

if nothing else this should be a fun scrap to watch. i really hope baroni can get a win or 2 in the octagon, im finding him much easier to like as time goes by, an underdog with heart is usually good for that.

shaping up to be an awesome card (if everything goes as planned) I've always enjoyed watching baroni fight even though he tends to lose a lot it is still always entertaining

seems like a good match up for Baroni. hopefully it will be a good fight with Baroni getting the win. i'd like to see him stick around for awhile he keeps things entertaining.

Could be Baroni's last fight in the UFC. He doesn't have more than a punchers chance against Davis.

This fight is going to have a VERY exciting first round, followed by a dominating 2 rounds for Davis. Baroni isn't a good fighter by any means but he's tough as nails and he's more exciting than the majority of the guys out there. He has nothing going for him in this fight except his power and his will to win. I see them coming out strong, throwing bombs and then Baroni slowing down the rest of the fight with Davis picking him apart. Gonna be a long night for Baroni in this one.

This is great for Marcus, a guy who likes to bang and doesn't have much cardio.....perfect for a 2nd round TKO!
