Michael Davis has waited long enough to get his second fight in the UFC, and we finally have an announcement about where, when, and who is next for “The BeastBoy”
The featherweight division will how be getting to see the divisional debut of a man who is expected to be a top contender for the foreseeable future as Mike “BeastBoy” Davis takes on Danny Henry at UFC Copenhagen September 28th.
Davis 7-2 returns to the octagon for the first time since making his UFC debut earlier this year where he took on Gilbert Burns on short notice, and at lightweight which is a weight class above where he normally competes. He took the loss that night and has been chomping at the bit to get back to work.
At 12-3 Danny Henry is certainly coming into this fight ready to work as he is looking to rebound from a loss in his bout vs Dan Ige earlier this year.
Davis and Henry are fighters that like the finish anyway possible. Whether it’s a submission or a fight-ending knockout, you can pretty much bank on this fight not going the distance.
Davis spent some time at Tiger Muay Thai after his octagon debut to work on different aspects of the game as he continues to evolve as a mixed martial artist. While he has been training with Pete White Boxing and MMA out of Port Orange Florida primarily and also spending time at Orlando’s Fusion X-Cel which is home to fellow UFC fighters Mike Perry and Jacare Souza, Davis has been spending a lot of time with the folks at American Top Team in Coconut Creek this summer where I’m told he has been a sponge soaking in all the knowledge he can and learning from some of the best coaches in the sport.
Davis who likes to spend time going to the movies or playing a few video games and in between fight camps munching out on some zebra cakes is ready to get his 1st UFC win as he continues to march toward his goal of becoming a UFC champion!
