While they may not throw any ticker-tape parades for him, Zach Davis' profile is continuing to rise in the local mixed martial arts scene.
While he is already being known on a national scale by appearing on this season of "The Ultimate Fighter", Davis is also appearing on the local news to share his story of perseverance.
A little-known fact is divulged in the story that Davis was an alternate on the 2007 season of TUF. The story also chronicles Davis' battle with a torn retina in his eye, an injury that would put most athletes on the shelf permanently.
I mentioned in my last post that Davis competed at the last Shogun Fights event in Baltimore. One wonders if Davis will make an appearance at this month's event that will take place April 30.
