Davis is good on the ground, but he's too slow and deliberate for Vinny, outclassed in every way.

Problem is, he doesn't have the striking to scare Vinny, they WILL tie up eventually and hit the ground, possibly with Davis initiating the takedown. He'll go back to what he knows best and pay for it.

Vinny hasn't faced anybody of note yet. His grappling credentials are crazy, but we don't know that much about his MMA grappling. His biggest win is Igor... Vinny also doesn't respond well to being hit. He got finished by a half deflected punch from Bader. Even the few punches Igor landed, Vinny reacted poorly too. Igor just made the mistake of taking him down and paid for it.

Davis has solid BJJ, and excellent wrestling. We haven't seen Vinny's MMA grappling against a guy like Davis. He could very well submit him, but I don't think it's safe to say that if Davis takes him down, it will result in an automatic submission win for Vinny. I think people are banking too much on Vinny's grappling credentials and are forgetting this is MMA where it is a lot different. Who has Vinny beat? He's fought mostly unknown fighters and is still new to the real MMA scene in my opinion. I wouldn't be surprised if Davis got him down and grinded him a little without taking any risks. Davis seems very confident in his ground game against Vinny for some reason. That makes me a little curious.

Standing, it could go either way. You can say Phil has the worst stand up at 205, but Vinny's isn't much better at all and he doesn't have a great chin and like I said, doesn't respond well to being hit.

I think Davis has this. He seems extremely confident and I think it will pay off.

I hope Davis wins. After watching the countdown I see Vinny is still the same arrogant douche from TUF 8.

It's weird too considering he hasn't beat anyone of note in MMA. Igor is his biggest win, and Igor gave him all kinds of trouble up until he had a mental hiccup and forgot that he had barely any sort of ground game, yet he was taking down pretty much a pure BJJ ace.

Mikhail Zayats is pretty good too. He was handing Vinny his ass up until the head kick, but a win is a win.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

Got to at least like he has been training with Sonnen, so he will get good looks at wrestlers tenancies. Plus Chael has to be able to help him make the best gameplan to attack a wrestler with his skillset.

I want to be excited for this fight, but I find myself caring very little. Which is strange as I like Phil Davis.
