Marcus Davis was able to drop Nate Diaz in the first round of their UFC 118 bout but from that point onward it was all downhill for Davis. After a flurry where Diaz went down Davis tried to pounce and landed several more blows but Diaz recovered and caught Davis with a punch that opened a nasty cut.
From that point on Diaz landed punches at will while Davis would look for a single punch at a time. By the third round Davis' eye was badly swollen and bleeding as he got tagged over and over. Diaz was able to take the fight to the ground where he locked in a choke. Davis did not want to tap out in his "home town" so he went unconscious from the choke giving Nate Diaz the technical submission win.
