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.

Dana White – “Roy Nelson is a moron”

UFC President Dana White had some interesting things to say about not only The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights cast, but about Roy Nelson in particular. First, White forgets Nelson’s name and refers to him as “the bodybuilder,” then proceeds to call him as a “complete idiot,” “Jackass,” and “moron.” “Interview him sometime and you’ll see what I’m talking about,” White says.

Many have suspected Nelson was one of the TUF 10 finalists, but one would not think a promoter would say something like this about one of his fighters who will be fighting on the TUF 10 Finale card right? That is probably not the best way to promote a guy who could potentially be the next “Ultimate Fighter.”
