BREAKING NEWS: UFC Signs Top-Ranked Florida Fighter
April 19th, 2019
The UFC is coming to South Florida on April 27th, as it is #UFConESPNplus3 live from the BB&T Center in Sunrise.
A card that already features some solid homegrown talent like Ben Saunders, Jacare Souza and the larger than life Platinum Mike Perry, Mike Perry,we are going to see the octagon debut of a man who trains with all three of the fighters mentioned above, and is without a doubt one of the most highly touted prospects to step into the octagon in the last year Michael Davis aka Mike “Beast Boy” Davis Fan Page
His patience has paid off and while it’s not how he wanted it to happen, Davis is ready to take the last minute fight with a smile on his face as he steps in to replace Eric Wisely in a lightweight bout with Gilbert “Durinho” Burns.
Davis (7-1), who had what many deem the best fight ever in Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series against Sodiq Yusuff, a fight that got Yusuff into the octagon, is riding a two-fight winning streak into the vaunted #UFCOCTAGON is more than up for the challenge at any weight from 145 to 170lbs.
A solid boxing background, combined with top-notch wrestling and legitimate Brazilian jiu-jitsu skills on top of freakish strength and speed, as well as a high fight IQ should benefit Davis as he now gets to live his dream of fighting in the UFC.
Davis, a product of Pete White and Pete White Boxing and MMA and also an Island Fights veteran can now add his name to the ever-growing list of fighters that Island Fights CEO Dean Toole has helped elevate their career to the next level, something Toole takes tremendous pride in, and why his promotion was signed to a broadcast deal with UFC Fight Pass.
We had this announcement ready to go on Tuesday night, Davis even appeared on my show Cage Side with Christopher James, but we couldn’t make an official announcement because paperwork still had to be completed so we did a little Q&A session, which was a lot of fun.
Davis is a client of Abraham Kawa of First Round Management, who has been working diligently as he always does, to get him to the octagon, and now that the “I’s” are dotted and the “T’s” are crossed the world will see just exactly who Mike “Beast Boy” Davis is!
