UFC Light Heavyweight Champ Chooses Machida Over Davis

UFC 163: Aldo vs Zombie goes down this Saturday with the co-main event having title implications on the line in the striker vs. wrestler match up as Lyoto Machida collides with Phil Davis at 205 pounds.

Jon Jones, who has faced Machida once before, thinks that the striking deficiency of Davis will be his undoing this weekend.

“I think Lyoto Machida is gonna win. He has phenomenal footwork. Machida has a very deceptive left hand. I don’t think Phil Davis’ kickboxing level has anything to do with that.”

Davis hasn’t shown the ability to finish the fight standing in the UFC thus far with 6 decisions and two submissions.

Machida has knocked out 6 of his 14 opponents in the UFC and has also had 7 judges’ decisions go his way.
