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.
