Review: 2014-04-26, some good exchanges but the fight between Phil Davis and Anthony Johnson was not so exciting: it gets two stars. Phil Davis entered this fight with a pro mma record of 12-1-0 (50% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.3 light heavyweight in the world, he suffered his only defeat when he faced Rashad Evans in 2012 (=Evans vs Davis), since then he has collected three wins and one no-contest.
His opponent, Anthony Johnson, has a record of 16-4-0 (69% ko/tko victory rate – he has never won by submission) and he entered as the No.13 in the same weight class (currently the #1 in this division is Jon Jones), he was released from the Ufc in 2012 after he missed weight and lost to Vitor Belfort (=Belfort vs Johnson), since then he has won six consecutive bouts. Davis vs Johnson is on the undercard of Jon Jones vs Glover Teixeira – UFC 172. Watch the video and rate this fight!
