Most opponents that have fought Lyota Machida have alluded to solving the 'Machida-puzzle', that is Machida has a style that is hard to be ready for until you see it in the cage. However, Phil Davis thinks he has the key to help him defeat Machida, and it's not what you might think:

"I was watching tape of him for three or four hours straight," he said, in a delivery not at all laced with comedy. "He blinks his left eye twice, and then he comes at you with fury. I went back and watched over-and-over. I have a really nice TV. I zoomed in on it. Yes, he does it, he blinks his left eye twice, and pow. So I’ll be watching his eye all night. The real danger for him is he’s not going to be the first person to look into my eyes and get mesmerized. "

Davis has played too much Mike Tyson's Punchout.

It would be hilarious if Roy Nelson just laughed if you punched his belly though

Well, if he's going to be staring at Lyoto's left eye during the fight, I think it's safe to say he'll be planking by the second. Phone Post 3.0

That's actually a good point, maybe he'll try and take out Machida's left eye, thus nullifying the attack. Phone Post 3.0

Phil Davis seems like a really cool dude. Too bad he's boring as fuck as a fighter most of the time.

haha, yes. Watch out for the uppercut when he blinks!

You also get a star for punching Tyson in the head when he blinks both eyes before he does his version of Piston Honda's rush. Man, some of those patterns/tells are permanently seared into my brain.

... I've played a lot of Punch-Out... -_-

DanTheWolfman - Is Serious? If you figure out the guys tell before the big game, you don't tell him until after you take him....hasn't he watched any gambling movies or the Sting?
I honestly doubt he's serious...
He is known to play around with people time to time.

Machida actually does use facial expresssions to throw his opponents off. its a facet of his game. A lot of people dont seem to get that Davis is joking around though. pretty funny actually

Be funny if this caused Machida to watch a couple hours of his own film to see if he actually does this.
