I like the sounds of this and it doesnt look like theyre giving Davis any tin cans eaither, Gustafsson is one tough fighter and if he can take him out then that speaks for itself.

davis definitely will get his chin tested if he stands but if he wouldn't stand with Stann I don't think he'll risk anything in this fight either. I think he'll do alot better though especially with trying to finish. I think he definitely should win this fight. Would like to see him finish but for now I'll stay with the UD, he wrestling is just sick.

Was very impressed with Davis in his debut fight...however Gustafsson is no joke and has great striking. I think Davis can control the fight with his superior wrestling though and either win by TKO in the later rounds or UD. Only being 5-0 in MMA, I don't see Davis taking many risks this early in his career.

Theyre two of the biggest LHW prospects. Why have these guys fight each other already?

They have to step it up sooner or later. This is the highest level of the sport. No need to baby fighters just so they can keep a 0 in the loss column.
