Right here’s what Phil Davis does. He’s actually laborious to afflict or build great against. Until the opponent is overmatched, he’s very great a alive to supervisor of threat. Nonetheless that formulation he would now not actually push the battle. You catch relatively a few this as a consequence.

Davis retains his picture of no longer being stopped, but continues to shoot is vogue within the foot by selecting to strike with low output.

Great to verify Nemkov at remaining run five, but no longer obvious how great he used to be actually pushed, as Davis’ vogue also pollutes this pattern dimension. 49-46 Nemkov right here.

Phil Davis is 22-6 & a Top 10 205s within the enviornment . Nonetheless watching him battle is frustrating because at the originate up of his occupation I believed he’d be a GOAT at 205, perchance 25-3 picture 🧐
