Davis: I'm going to submit Machida


Phil Davis is primarily a wrestler and Lyoto Machida has only been submitted once in his twenty two professional bouts, however that is exactly what Davis has planned for their UFC 163 bout:

“What makes Lyoto Machida so unique is that he’s quite effective at catching people rushing in. Anyone who comes straight at him he usually punishes. I’m gonna stick to my bread and butter,” stated Davis in an interview with the UFC. “My plan is go to Rio and get another submission win and be able to build my legacy that way."

“Machida was next in line for the title-shot and winning against him will put me up there in the contendership race,” said Davis.

Not only will he fail to sub machida, I doubt he's able to land one takedown

Poor Davis. Such a bad, nearly impossible match up for him.

He escaped with 30 seconds left to be exact.

JBJ is a much better MMA wrestler then Davis (not because of skill but because of Jones being able to utilize a larger frame/length).

I don't understand why this is such a bad match up for Phil.He's not Bader, who looks for big punches. He's a grinder, and looks to set up shots constantly.I don't see a counter puncher like Machida KO'ing a guy who isn't going to be engaging standing.Davis by (shocking, I know) Unanimous Decision.

And Machida wasn't saved by the bell, he escaped before the round ended.So the point is moot

So you guys think jones can put him to sleep but Davis doesn't have a shot? I don t think bones is that much better than Phil in the grappling dept. Prob won't happen but I don't think it's crazy to think Phil could sub him.

Is he going to make Lyoto fall asleep from making him watch boring fights?
