I forgot this fight in the middle of such a great card, but i really love watching Phil Davis wrestle...maybe more so than any other straight wrestler.

Davis looked like the exact same guy he's been in every single one of his UFC fights. He hasn't shown a lick of improvement. He's a great wrestler with good subs who shies away from getting hit and has literally no striking standing up at all. He's simply too one-dimensional.
Yeah the same exact guy who beat Tim Boetsch, Brian Stann, Alexander Gustaffson and Minotauro Nogueria...what a terrible fighter.

I'm a bit disappointed that he still seems to have nothing more with his hands than a wild looping shot, and a fairly sloppy and loose jab. I know he is trying to improve in this area, but I can't help but think that other similar MMA fighters, who were primarily wrestlers, managed to develop this side of their game a lot quicker.

If Davis somehow managed to develop dangerous stand up, beyond some decent kicks, he would instantly become a contender. Right now, I'm not convinced he is showing the signs that he can. Hope I'm wrong though. This is his first fight in a while where he was fully healthy after a good amount of time off.
He's not good at standup and probably never will be...but then again neither is Chael Sonnen.

Phil Davis is getting better at the things he's already good at, especially his submission grappling.

He fought Minotoro, not Minotauro.

I know one of them is Minotauro. Lil Nog and Big Nog is the right way to go indeed.
