How good was Davis/Taylor?

This fight was 4 pure minutes of action. Definately my favourite fight of the night and it gave us two promising stars at 170. Taylor has power and charisma, while Davis has heart, good standup, and an always improving submission game.

I remember watching the referee almost jump in to stop the fight when Taylor was beating the crap out of him, and then all of a sudden a minute later Taylor is mounted and submitted.

Great fight, and my FOTN.

Simply awesome fight. Easily the FOTN. When Davis went down I was like "It's done", but good reffing of Yves Lavigne's part and good defense by Davis let the fight go on, and we had a complete reverse of fortunes. Great fight.

Support Mixed Martial Arts, not Ultimate Fighting

Very good fight.. Lots of action.

Really impressed with Marcus, not only his fighting skills but his personality. He was very humble and gave his opponent lots of props which is good cause he did almost lose. Unlike Bisping who definately lost his fight to Hamill, Marcus didn't talk trash.

Even his post fight interview on UFC.com he was very humble about the whole thing. Becoming one of my favorite fighters quickly.

Fight was incredible, extremely fast paced and very back and forth.

Taylor impressed me a whole lot, he looks to be very good standing up, great addition to WW if he works his ground a little more. Marcus Davis, what more can be said about this dude, really getting his shit together, I see him being alot of trouble for the top 5 WW's

Oh yeah, easily the FOTN, and a FOTYC. This performance and fight doesn't get enough love, and that's a shame, because shit like Hamill vs Bisping gets 400 threads dedicated to it.

It's kinda disapointing how so many people are talking about the diminishing Cro Cop when you have two rising stars who left it all out there and actually put on a show get little to no recognition.

Oh well, comes with fame I suppose.
