Just my opinion and I'm a BJJ guy, but I don't like the style matchup for Davis, even though he's thoroughly skilled in subs himself, Vinny is on a level almost entirely by himself at 205, with maybe Cruz and Drysdale in his company(within the MMA BJJ game)
You also gotta keep in mind, when looking at Vinny taking the fight on short-notice, he'd have to cancel Christmas and come down in weight, as he's an extremely big LHW. I don't think he could've made it in time.
How does it end up on the ground? I know we see Phil go for takedowns in almost every fight, but not to the extent of someone like Sonnen or Askren... Davis has shown that he doesnt mind standup up and trading.... let alone against someone like Vinny whose standup is questionable and his BJJ so overwhelming...
