Phil Davis submits Tim Boetsch via "Mr. Wonderful" in Round 2Posted on November 20, 2010, 10:03 PM by Anton Gurevich
Unbeaten UFC Light Heavyweight prospect Phil Davis continued his winning ways inside the Octagon, this time defeating the more experienced Tim Boetsch via a modified Kimura submission.
Davis surprised with a stand-up approach in the First Round, landing some good kicks and striking combos. But as the things got little "boring" for Phil Davis, he took the action to the ground, damaging Tim Boetsch with an effective Ground and Pound strikes.
Tim Boetsch had a better start of Round 2, after landing some stiff jabs and successfully defending Phil Davis's takedown attempts. Boetsch also went for a Guillotine Choke, which caused Phil Davis to consider tapping out for a split second. The most impressive thing about Phil Davis's victory is that he was able to get out of the Guillotine Choke, and respond with a submission maneuver of his own.
Davis twisted Tim Boetsch's hand behind back, before submitting the "Barbarian" via a modified Kimura in the middle of Round 2. Boetsch was in an impossible position, as his other arm was controlled by Phil Davis, and his legs were locked in half-guard.
It's 8-0 in MMA for Davis, and 4-0 in the UFC. And just like with Jon Jones, UFC will need to test the talented Wrestler with a Top 15 challenger.
