I like Davis - the dude always shows up ready to fight. I think that he'll bounce back from this fight a better fighter and won't overlook an opponent in the future. While his gameplan obviously didn't work out, I can see why he thought that way. What fighter doesn't think he can beat the other guy? Was he overconfident in how easy he thought the W would be? Yes. Hopefully he won't repeat that mistake.
Also, from a promoter stand point, I think that he is good for the UFN & UK shows. The guy has a name in the UK (at least it appears that way to me from the USA), because he can be the "bad guy" to the UK fighters. Who in the UK didn't want to see what Hardy was going to do to him?
I like the guy, and I think he's a great gatekeepr and/or exciting fighter to give the fans for a FOTN or KOOTN on a free card.
My favorite fighters of all time:
