Marcus Davis vs. Pete Spratt Confirmed for MFC 30
By FCF Staff
After losing a fight with lightweight opponent Richie Whitson due to injury, Marcus Davis will return to welterweight to face fellow UFC vet Pete Spratt, at the Maximum Fighting Championship’s upcoming June 10th event. The promotion’s thirtieth event will be hosted by the Mayfield Conference Center in Edmonton, Alberta.
“There will be no shortage of fireworks in this fight,” touted MFC Owner/President Mark Pavelich. “I can’t see anything but explosive excitement happening. This should be an awesome display – one of the best all-out wars the MFC has ever put together.”
Davis (pictured) is coming off a successful MFC debut in April, as the former pro boxer worked his way to a split decision win over Canadian lightweight Curtis Demarce. The win came after Davis dropped back-to-backs bouts to Nate Diaz and Jeremy Stephens, which led to his UFC exit.
Spratt (22-19) is also coming off a win at MFC 29, as the welterweight vet submitted Demi Deeds in the second round, to end a two fight losing streak.
Davis and Spratt fought once before at UFC 69 in April, 2007, which saw Davis scored a second round, submission win via Achilles Lock.
The June 10th, MFC 30 card will be broadcast live on HDNet.
