First off, King Mo was injured an unable to fight in the final. Also, his opponent Linton Vassell was not cleared to fill in, so alternate Francis Carmont stepped in to fight Phil Davis.
The fight didn’t last long. There was a feeling out process where both fighters sort of stayed patient and didn’t really throw much.
Then out of no where Davis landed a big left hand that put Carmont down. He pounced on him and delivered some brutal ground and pound. Carmont went out and the referee stepped in and stopped the fight.
Really a big win for Davis who wins the tournament and will face the winner of Liam McGeary and Tito Ortiz, but really, I wished it was ‘King Mo’ vs. Davis. Oh well.
RESULT: Davis wins via TKO (strikes) – Round 1, 2:15, wins tournament, will fight for title
