Seems no one likes this matchup, if enough people complain then Dana will scrap it.

It's horrible matchmaking. Why feed such a raw guy to Rashad, as a replacement for what would have been a big title fight? It makes little sense and is bad for Davis. He's obliged to accept but I bet he isn't particularly happy with this, he needs time before stepping in with the top guys.

Rashad wins this fight standing.

Can't believe this, WOW.



Wow.



I think Davis is a monster, people thinking Lil Nog is the best striker he's faced are insane. The guy dismantled Gustaffson and Brian Stann.


I can't believe this, this is crazy, I think this fight is actually going to be pretty great and they're lining up Davis vs. Jones pretty blatantly.

My reluctance to see this fight honestly stems only from his showing against Lil Nog. Maybe Nog fought the fight of his life and Davis was off, who knows. But he didn't impress as much as I hoped he would.

Credit his gameplanning for switching to the single in that 2nd round and being able to secure td's after that but he looked terrible in the 1st. Td's stuffed over and over and looked hesitant in the stand up aside from his kicks.

Was hoping for a more dominant performance but maybe he'll surprise everyone and dominate Rashad. Be lying if I said I wouldn't enjoy it

Either way, here's to it being a great fight

Damn this sucks. Not looking forward to this fight as much as the Jones fight. Hope Davis destroys Rashad, but I think Rashad can give him a few problems.

I think Davis looked great in that fight honestly. Lil Nog looked amazing and crisp and had been training for wrestlers for the last three fights, so his TDD was spot on.


But Davis did some super-human take downs and take down attempts that I honestly couldn't believe Nog was able to stuff. I wish there was some gifs up of them.


And really with a guy like Lil Nog how else can you beat him? You're not likely to sub him and he was only KO'd once ages ago by Soko.

After watching the Nog and Brills fight I was expecting Davis to run through him is my point. When Phil didn't I was dissapoint.

Apparently I underestimated Nogs ability or maybe Davis isn't as talented as I had hoped. Luckily, we shall see soon enough
