Normally fighting at 330, Davis will make his pro debut at a catchweight of 285

Jim Davis is set to make his professional MMA debut at Intimidation Cage Fighting 17 on Oct. 31, 2009, at Turfway Park in Florence, Ky. The reigning ICF super-heavyweight champion, Davis will actually be making his pro debut at a catchweight of 285 as he moves down to the heavyweight division, where he plans on playing out his pro career. Davis’s five amateur wins never made it out of the first round, and never out of the first minute.

However, Davis is not one to back down from a challenge, a fact made especially clear when the ICF announced who he would be facing in his first professional fight – UFC veteran Dan Christison.

PROMMA.INFO recently had the chance to catch up with Davis to talk about his fighting career so far and what he thinks about facing such a tough opponent in his first professional match.

Sammy Rodriguez lays on the ground and pound.

(In one of my final posts for FightTicker.com I did a profile on Sammy Rodriguez, a fighter out of Highlander Tampa, prior to his fight with Team Jorge Gurgel fighter Taylor Ruscin.  Sammy is a great guy and I was very impressed with what he had to say on how he got into fighting and why he fights so I wanted the PROMMA.INFO readers to have a chance to see it as well.  – Furby)

I first met Sammy Rodriguez prior to “ICF: Breakout” at US Bank Arena. I was hanging out with Fight Ribbon Co-Founders Brent Thompson and Scott Wells the night before the big event and we met up with Highlander MMA founder Mike Yanez and Rodriguez to hang out and catch up.
