UFC 123 Results - Phil Davis Breaks Out The 'Mr. Wonderful' Against Tim Boetsch

While many fans will insist that Jon Jones is the brightest prospect in the 205 pound division, some would argue that Phil "Mr. Wonderful" Davis is the man that may be able to stop Jones' roll. Davis used his great wrestling credentials and ever improving submission game to completely dominate Tim Boetsch before finishing him with a new submission in the second round. Boetsch is no slouch as a wrestler himself but he simply could not compete with Davis' pedigree.

In the first round Phil Davis controlled the action with a takedown and a steady stream of ground and pound. In the second round it was a takedown yet again but this time Davis locked Boetsch's arm behind his back and then finished the kimura type maneuver with his other hand behind the back.

In the post fight interview Davis claimed he invented the move and Joe Rogan declared it will be known as the "Mr. Wonderful."
