Marcus Davis

Marcus Davis will still make his Maximum Fighting Championship debut in April, but it will be with a new opponent.

Original opponent Kajan Johnson is out with an injured shoulder, and Curtis Demarce has stepped in as a replacement.

Sources close to the negotiations confirmed the new bout to MMAWeekly.com on Sunday.

Demarce is a veteran fighter who has competed in MFC before. His last bout out he lost a split decision to Richie Whitson in late February.

The bout between Davis and Demarce will still be a featured fight on the HDNet broadcast of the MFC show in April, which is also the promotion’s debut in Ontario.
