The lineup for UFC 106 continues to shape up, with a fifth welterweight bout reportedly added to the card. Marcus “The Irish Hand Grenade” Davis will be taking on Ben “Killa B” Saunders at the November 21 event in Las Vegas, according to a report by MMA Junkie, and both fighters will be looking to rebound after recent losses.
Davis was last in action in June at UFC 99 in Germany, suffering a unanimous decision loss to Dan Hardy. Prior to the loss, Davis had put together back-to-back wins over Paul Kelly and Chris Lytle, after losing to Saunders’ last opponent, Mike Swick, at UFC 85. The Las Vegas event will mark Davis’ first fight on American soil since his April 2007 victory over Pete Spratt in Houston.
Saunders’ was also last in action at UFC 99 against Swick, suffering a second-round TKO that ended a three fight win streak he had been on since his time on The Ultimate Fighter.
UFC 106 is also rumored to include a heavyweight title fight between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin, as well as the UFC return of Tito Ortiz against Mark Coleman.
