Video: Watch UFC 163's Phil Davis fight Tim Boestch in 2010


After a drop from light heavyweight to middleweight, Tim Boestch resurrected his career and eventually entered the title picture. Phil Davis is probably partially to thank.

Davis (11-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC), who returns to action on Saturday in a UFC 163 co-headliner with Lyoto Machida (19-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC), entered the UFC after just four pro fights and won his first five fights in the octagon.

One of those wins came against the always-tough Boetsch (16-6 MMA, 7-5 UFC), and it earned Davis “Submission of the Night” honors. It also demonstrated “Mr. Wonderful’s” craftiness and brute strength, which helped convince Boetsch that a move to 185 pounds would be a good plan.

Check out the full fight above.
