Lytle went to town on Davis in the 2nd round early. And pretty much controlled the second round keeping Davis out of reach. Davis landed some good body shots but was bleeding from his nose by the end of the round. The 3rd Round both fighters were a bit hesitant in their combos. Davis was able to land some good very good kicks to the midsection. Lytle’s left eye saw significant damage as you could easily it was swollen.

Dan Henderson def. Rich Franklin via split decision

UFC 93 has come and gone, and I gotta say it was a rather entertaing event. More so than the extremely overhyped UFC 92. This event had a couple of good bangers. I have to say that I truely enjoyed the Lytle fight, Henderson fight, and Shogun’s fight, and even Palhares’ dominating fight. Tough luck for Franklin I thought he did a pretty good job against Henderson but he just didn’t do enough to win the fight.
