Davis is trying but this hasn't been a great start of fights on FOX so far for the casual fan.
It was ZUFFA's dumbass fault that made such a stupid matchup in the first place. They should blame themselves for making such an entirely inappropriate fight...this fight was obviously a mismatch.

I wonder if Jones is going to step into the Octagon after Evans' hand is raised.

Hopefully Rashad hasn't stolen Phil's soul. Some fighters learn from these types of fights, while others are never the same.

Let's look at a guy like Chris Weidman and how he fared against Maia tonight, how do you think he would've fared against a guy like Vitor Belfort?

This is essentially what the the UFC did here and for some reason thought it would be a good idea to put it in the main event.

The only difference is Vitor almost surely would'e gotten Weidman out of there, while Rashad is very passive and generally lacks killer instinct

Can't believe Rashad hasn't finished Davis yet. Davis gassed 2 minutes into the fight and hasn't put up any form of a fight.

Can't disagree with this- really curious why they selected this fight and card in their second attempt on FOX when trying to attract casual fans.

Davis was by far the best fighter available to face Rashad... Rashad has already beaten everyone else in the division other then Hendo and Shogun who were both going to be out for a fair bit.

Been telling people this for a while now his shot isn't that good. His problem is that everything is one step at a time though even his grappling. There isn't any smooth transition to the next technique it is all slow and methodical. You can't fight like that at the top of the division.

Davis managed to go 5 rounds though, that was a good thing. Granted Rashad isn't a killer finisher but still.
