Phil Davis post UWC 6 comments

At this last weekend’s “UWC 6: Capital Punishment” card, Phil Davis dominated veteran Terry Cohens from the top position en route to a first round TKO stoppage. After the victory that moved his professional record to 3-0, the former Nittany Lion national champion spoke to the media. PRO MMA (promma.info) staff writer Richard Mann was on the scene.

Despite dominating the fight from the outset, Davis said, “I didn’t really get a chance to settle into the fight.” When asked about the finish he said, “He [the referee] stopped it when he stopped it.” Davis credited Cohens’ durability for the prolonged barrage of punches, “I think the last time I got a TKO, I didn’t land as many clean punches. This time I landed a lot more clean punches.”
