I hate to see Marcus get cut, but he is clearly past his prime and after such a vicious KO loss it was the right move.

Vera and McKee I could care less.

I really hope Marcus retires before get really gets hurt.

Finally Vera got released...

I didn't see the Davis .vs. Stephens fight, but was it exciting? I heard Davis got owned in the end.

Davis was doing pretty damn good up until the KO though, I thought Stevens would destroy him but it didn't happen.
