Phil Davis has heard all the talk that he didn’t defeat Lyoto Machida this past weekend at UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie.
Regardless of what people think, though, the official records read a Davis decision victory over the former UFC light heavyweight champion.
“Mr. Wonderful” took to Twitter to ask fans to remember that, unless you are in attendance, things don’t always translate the same through the television.
“I love this sport but it looks much different on TV than in person,” he wrote. “If you are a UFC fan make sure you attended a live show for the (real) deal.”
The win will likely vault Davis up the 205-pound ladder, as Machida was ranked No. 1 prior to the loss.
