    He didn’t seam Intrested in shooting. He was throwing HEAVY leather and bucked me slightly one or twice. But I though keeping my jab out and maintaining distance was a deterrent for him shooting

    The Quinn Davis fight was worth the trip. The rest of the card was painful. If it wasn’t for joking with BKB and his brother, and chatting with Sean’s brother the night would of been very long and boring waiting for the main event.

    The fight itself was very entertaining! Sean came to the cage focussed and determined. Tyler looked very nervous as he kept looking up at Quinn from outside the cage as he was getting prepped to fight. Sean looked so poised early on it was crazy!! Although the EFC cage is small, Sean was able to control the middle of the cage and kept Tyler to the outside. It was a treat to watch!

    Tyler seemed to find his confidence in the last minute of the round and really settled into his own. The “deer in the headlights” look was gone and the confidence began to show. Tyler started to relax and when he did he was a lot quicker.

    Thanks to Sean and Tyler for the great entertainment!! It was a pleasure to meet Sean’s wife and brother. I was hoping to have a beer with Sean but it wasn’t a good time. Thanks to BKB and his bro for the laughs and conversation, always a pleasure.

    Big congrats to Tyler! You showed a lot, especially when you settled in and realized you belonged in there with Quinn. Thanks for the beer after and the chat. It was great to talk to Mike as always. He’s so humble and man was he a proud brother last night!

    In the last month and a half I have see both Davis brothers fight in the biggest fights of their careers (IMO). I thought Mike was going to lose to Laudischer and I thought Tyler would lose to Quinn. Man have these kids improved!!

    Totally need to see a rematch with 2 proper camps! Davis did do great but from what I saw, davis tapped in the 1st round I t wasn’t seen so not to take any thing away from davis. Wish it wasn’t so hard for quinn to get fights!! The best batam weight in canada.

  11. Tyler Davis says:

    The first choke he got me in was very deep and I might have raised my hand in preparation to tap I truly do not remeber. I just remeber the thought was there!!!!but canI assure you ia did not!That could have been my easy out. Thanks dean for the chat. It ment alot to have people drive all that way just to watch me and Quinn, BKB was good to chat with too. I would consider a rematch but honestly I’m just going to heal up a little and eat some pizza before I start planning more fights,6 rounds in less than a month takes it outta a guy. Great play by play. And yes Donnie I knew this Sean was in that higher echelon of Canadain Mma and decided to see where I stand. Thanks to EFC for putting this fight on

    @ youknowwhoiam

    You think quinn is the best bantam weight in canada…

    I think john fraser or josh hill would have something to say about that…
    I think these are the top 2 bantam weights in canada…my 2 cents

  17. true mma fan says:

    why does the top heavyweight got to be brought up on every forum lol. in my eyes tim hague. Just cause hakert beat him dont make him top heavyweight. Tim has fought some tough opponents in his time. Like pat berry and travis wiuff and made it into the ufc. But the next mfc event will tell the story

  18. youknowwhoiam says:

    Bring the pain, I would love to see a quinn vs either of those 2 guys. They would be out standing fights. And yes I think quinn is the best canadian bantam weight in canada who is not in the UFC! also think quinn puts on the most exiting fights every time he steps in the cage! I really wish fights would step up and fight him and not always duck him. There is a huge talent pool in canada but everyone wants the easy fight. That’s why quinn has my respect he is willing to take on any one at any time,even when its not in his best interest!

    I agree with True mma fan about top HW….Tim still is unless Hackert beats him again..
    .as for bantam weights niether john or josh are in the UFC…but it is rumored that they will fight this summer or fall…and im sure the winner of that fight fight makes it to the show….im not taking anything away from Quinn…but in my opinion hes not top bantam weigh…my 2 cents

  22. Jake - JHEG says:

    Congrats to Davis on the win. As for Quinn, I can without a doubt say he’s one of the most entertaining fighters in Canada and is a very talented fighter.

    However, with that being said, he needs to look after his career. Taking short notice fights and being willing to step in anytime w/anyone isn’t the way to go. He needs a proper camp and to train specifically for who he’s fighting for. Most everyone else gets to do it, but because Sean has difficulty finding fights, he takes what he can get. Unfortunately, this isn’t the right way and it’s not fair to him whatsoever.

    Just my .02

  23. Idolmaker says:

    Putz!!!! Haha that’s hilarious!!! I agree with jake 100% on Quinn. Dude can’t catch a break, and is forced to take fight that aren’t in his best interests. It’s a shame really, he’s outrageously talented.

  24. Tyler Davis says:

    We were both training …..just for different fights. He was training to fight on axe I do belive….and I was training for Marc the bitch beasuolei. So Sean Quinn made me lose some sleep lol I watched his fight with Nick dennis and that was it cause it scared me lol I got my brother to watch all the other ones for me and then compile a strategy from his opinions

  25. @Jake-JHEG… my $.02 on Sean Quinn are the same as they were when he fought Roland Delorme – he needs an MMA team to train with and I don’t think there are good MMA teams in Regina.

    It would be good if he could head to WAMMA in Winnipeg or Alliance in Saskatoon and train with some solid MMA guys.

    Hey tyler I hope you get your chance punch the bitch right out of marc! But as fore quinn training for some one else at the time, u are incorrect he wasn’t.

  27. youknowwhoiam says:

    Keith you are exactly right about quinn needing to move out of regina. The ppl around him think he is great but that’s not enough. Quinn has endless talent and that’s the problem, there is no one in saskatchewan that he can do some really training with. He needs to move east to train with talented fighters like himself.

    regina has fantastic muay thai, good boxing, amazing wrestling and good bjj… don’t blame it on there not being an MMA gym.

    most MMA gym’s are filled with people D level fighters who are not good at anything and will only be stepping stones for other fighters’ resumes

  31. Tyler Davis says:

    Ya that interview on the front page of this topmmanews check it out. I heard he was sopposed to get matched up for axe so I assume he was training for it. I imagine that’s the Calgary thing he was talking about at the end. but don’t get me wrong I know he had a surprise wieght cut and like three or four days notice.

  32. looper…. I agree that Regina has great gyms.

    I think that fighters today need to combine all those skills with MMA training/sparring in gyms that have guys that aren’t stepping stones and can beat you up a bit.

    Wow I can’t believe what I am reading. They both took the fight on short notice. Tyler had a 2 week training camp to fight a guy with a fluffed up record. I don’t think a full camp would have made much difference.
