Phil's striking seems to be improved. I'm satisfied with that outcome

I hate it ... everytime 2 guys that are good on the ground collide we see a stand up fight , witch is stupid in my opinion .. ffs its not a trick anymore to use stand up as gameplan agaisnt a ground guy , everybody knows this now .. so throw your fking body on him and do what you do best ... its just stupid now , work on boxing when you fight a striker not a wrestler or a jiujitsu guy ffs... everybody does this now and its stupid now ...

I wouldn't expect Davis to hop in there with a high level BJJ black belt when he has a clear striking advantage. That's gameplanning 101. Davis played it smart.

He's definitely not the best, no hands with roscoe dash is pretty good though. And my personal favorite from him: i'm just living life

It's not strategy. They struggle to take each other down, control the ground positions or lock in a sub because they are both too good at each other's strengths. Two grapplers/wrestlers collide, they end up putting together nothing against the cage or separating and striking.

Vinny had nothing for him and has a lot to work on if he wants to succeed in MMA. BJJ and some kicks only get you so far.
I admit I said I thought Vinny MIGHT out strike him if he got aggressive. He even said on the lead up that he needs to be aggressive....and he wasn't.

Phil seemed to have thrown more hands than his usual kick from range approach. He is still an awful striker with overrated BJJ. He will beat his share of guys, but I don't really care for his fighting. I think Bader would beat him.

On a scale of 1-10, 1 being Ryan Couture's striking and 10 being you-know-who's, I'd say Phil has gone from a 3.5-4 last time I saw him to a 5.5-6. That's a pretty big improvement. Especially considering there are only a handful of fighters in the UFC who are above an 8.
