Domingo - IMO, Davis seems like he's always going to be a mid-card guy. If his strengths are in play, he'll be able to make some fighters (even good ones) look awful. However he's going to look just as bad himself against other opponents.
He's like a better version of most of those pedestrian BJJ black belts that show up on every TUF show.
I get the impression that he's really holding back in the cage. Not that I expected him to become the next Jon Jones, but I pegged him for the JDS to Jones' Cain.
Davis has a world class chin, his wrestling is fantastic, he's got an 80" reach, he's moves well, he has subs that work with his wrestling base, but something is missing. Maybe it's an intangible like killer instinct or something, but whatever it is it's keeping him in the middle of the pack.
He can snap a jab really well, so it's not a matter of ability or training, it's most likely mental.
Some guys have all the best ingredients, but still make a bland meal.
