Marcus Davis at UFC 118

Marcus Davis

Marcus Davis will search for redemption when he returns to action as a part of Maximum Fighting Championships in 2011.

The one time UFC welterweight and lightweight has signed a new deal with the MFC that will see him compete in Canada in the very near future.

MFC president Mark Pavelich made the announcement during the HDNet broadcast of MFC’s latest show on Friday night.

During his time with the UFC, Davis went 9-6 overall and at one time was close to title contention in the welterweight division.

Davis fell on harder times towards the end of his run with the UFC, going 1-4 in his last five fights. He has vowed to work hard to get back to where he was just a few short years ago.

There’s been no word on Davis’ debut, but the MFC 29 is currently scheduled for Ontario in April. With Davis’ connection to the East Coast, it would make sense that he would end up on that card.

MMAWeekly.com will have more information on Davis’ MFC debut when it becomes available.
