UFC 179 was just fine despite the fact that the card was full of inconsequential fights between people we didn’t know or care about. Then the main card started, and dragged on into an event that eventually devolved into Brian Stann talking about smiles, and how Glover Teixeira has the nicest one in combat sports. Well, we think Gennady Golovkin has the nicest smile, but that is neither here nor there, smile police. Or should I say, smile gestapo, you fascist (I’m speaking to Gary LaPlante right now).
Phil Davis went out and did what Phil Davis does, which was neutralize his opponent’s offense, work his wrestling and only strike when he knew he could be effective. It works out for him and he gets a good win in Brazil. Then, the real crux hits the last 20 minutes in the Octagon and we have something to write about. Phil Davis takes the mic, proclaims himself the Brazilian killer, then rescinds, saying he’s a penitent man, humble. A penitent man kneels before God, kneel! But he doesn’t and just says that he’s beaten a lot of Brazilians, but not one certain Brazilian.
Then he calls out Anderson Silva.
