Phil Davis Feels He Did Enough To Win

11

Many, including UFC President Dana White, felt following UFC 163 that Lyoto Machida was robbed against Phil Davis and should have won the decision. Davis, along with the judges of the fight felt that it went Davis’ way and he did enough to earn the win.

Davis spoke with FUEL TV following the fight and talked about his victory:

“I think I definitely did enough (to win),” Davis told Fuel TV after the fight ended. “I trust the judges. I’ve got to trust the judges when I lose, I’ve got to trust the judges when I win, they gave me the wink, they gave me the nod, so I’ve got to say thanks.”

“Here’s the thing—this is his home country, I know it was a close fight, I know that I was in there. I had fists graze my head the whole time. I know,” he explained. “It’s one of those things where you’re so close to the action you have no idea how it looks from the outside. A lot of times I watch fights and then I go home and I’m like man that looks completely different from a first person perspective.

“I was thinking 100 percent, man this is close, please go my way.”
