Following a strange ending in their first fight after an accidental eye poke, Phil Davis wanted to leave no doubts in his rematch with Wagner Prado at UFC 153.

Call it mission accomplished for the former NCAA champion in wrestling.

Phil Davis UFC 123The two fighters opened with some brief striking exchanges, but once Davis found his range, he was slipping under for takedown after takedown, putting Prado on his back.

The former Penn State Nittany Lion was like a bear determined to maul his prey, and he certainly showed his dominant ground work putting Prado in bad position after bad position throughout their fight.

After a dominant first round, Davis went back to work on the mat in the second, and Prado simply had no answer.

While Davis missed on an arm triangle choke, he quickly and fluidly transitioned to an anaconda choke, quickly rolling to his side and Prado tapped immediately.

“That’s one of my high percentage moves right there, I didn’t even get a chance to fully lock it in, but it worked,” Davis said about the submission.

2012 has been tough on Phil Davis who kicked off the year with his first professional loss to Rashad Evans at UFC on Fox 2, and then the odd ending in his bout with Prado back in August.

“Normally, I’m the young lion coming in, but I’ll tell you what it’s a definitely a different feeling getting in the gym knowing someone like Wagner Prado’s coming to take your block off,” Davis said about his preparation.

Now with an overwhelming victory over Prado at UFC 153, Davis can finally celebrate before 2012 comes to an end.
