Marcus Davis set to face Jonathan Goulet at UFC 113

Marcus Davis will attempt to avoid the first three-fight losing streak of his career on May 1 when he steps into the Octagon against Jonathan Goulet in Montreal at UFC 113.

“The Irish Hand Grenade” informed fans of his plans today on his Twitter page, saying he’d signed a contract to face the French-Canadian at the upcoming event.

Davis most recently suffered the first knockout of his career in a losing effort to Ben Saunders at UFC 106 after losing a split-decision to the welterweight division’s top contender, Dan Hardy, in his previous bout.

Goulet has been out of action since December 2008 but is 22-10 as a professional and will certainly have the Canadian crowd on his side.

The card appears to be a stacked one, as it is also rumored to feature a clash between fellow 170-pounders Paul Daley and Josh Koscheck, Kimbo Slice’s return to the Octagon against Matt Mitrione as first reported by, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson settling his score with Rashad Evans, and a rematch between light heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
