I am not Machida fan. I dont like his style and I was hoping that Davis will win but not like this. He is more dangerous for Jones in my opinion.
Machida was almost owning Davis in standup in whole 3 rounds, landed at lest 5,6 big blows and did his thing. But that wasnt enough against two takedowns, few secs on the ground and maybe one or two good body kicks. Machida was to passive and it is his fault that he lost. Its not his first time he lost like that, he won few to and he should learn by now. Still I dont like scoring criteria in this fight and i think Davis didnt do enough to win, he did in judges eyes.
Davis show he has very solid chin and that he can follow gameplan but thats nothing new for him. I think he is good fighter but nothing special except his athleticism and wrestling that makes him dangerous. Not champ material in my opinion.
