UFC Light Heavyweight Phil Davis

“UFC Fight Night 24: Nogueira vs. Davis” took place Saturday night inside the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington. Phil Davis earned a unanimous decision victory over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in the card’s featured attraction.

The only controversy surrounding Davis’ win was how lopsided the final score should have been. While most won’t argue he took the final two rounds, Davis was stuffed on every single takedown attempt in the opening five minutes. He was also tagged several times on his failed tries.

Regardless, it’s a moot point as “Mr. Wonderful” was rewarded with a runaway 30-27, 30-27, 30-27 verdict.
