Machida doesn't have to worry about Phil's power like he did Rampage.

Rampage won that fight because he had power and in turn Machida ran away for too long and the judges gave it to Rampage. Machida would have done quite well in that fight if he didn't fight so scared.

Im hoping for a Machida win since i think he has alot to offer the division and i think Davis is a middle of the road wrestler who relies alot on his athleticism.


I do think Machida will win this by TKO but if Davis was to get a UD i wouldnt be shocked.

This will be worst than Machida vs Hendo (i liked that fight but most of you didn't).
Machida will win by UD but the fight will be awful because Davis will be too tentative to engage in the striking and we know Machida won't be taken down...

I don't know how to feel about Machida these days, he destroys guys that are gun shy... but if you pressure him in the least, it doesn't bode well for him.

Rampage cut him off most of the fight, didn't let Lyoto get comfortable.

Shogun peppered him with kicks, circled and the rest is history

An abysmal showing by the dragon against Hendo.... another fight a la Rampage but got a close decision.

On paper Machida should easily win this, but I have a feeling it's going to be a lot closer than people think if Phil brings his A game and Lyoto sits back to counter punch.

Machida really has nothing to be scared of here.
Phil doesn't have good power and his striking is abysmal.

I expect this to look like a repeat of the Bader fight.

Terrible fight for Davis.

He needs to stay comfortable and throw low kicks in bunches to get machida to slow down. Machida is untouchable in the first round and will run and play tag all day if you don't make him do something else. The only things that have really worked against him are low kicks, he is astute and will time these and dash in with his straight punches. Shogun and Jones managed to use this against him and caught him dashing in but I don't think Davis has the timing to do this.

I wonder how Dana White and company feel about Cormier's keys to victory for Davis being "stay patient and if it has to be a boring fight, make it a boring fight." I don't necessarily disagree with that, but him saying that on television can't make too many people happy, the network included. Still, he's 100% correct. Only way I can see Davis winning is if he's successfully able to stay glued to Machida along the fence and ground long enough to take a decision. I don't see that happening, but that should probably be his game plan. I expect to see some stalling against the fence if Davis is able to close the distance.

I will be so disappointed and even more surprised if Machida doesn't take this.
