In a battle of boxing vs Muay Thai, the sweet science came up short as the 6'3" Ben Saunders used his length and powerful knees to make short work of boxer Marcus Davis.
Both fighters were coming in off a loss, Davis dropping a decision to #1 welterweight contender Dan Hardy and Saunders being beaten out by Mike Swick.
In the first, Saunders found himself forced against the cage by the smaller Davis. The first time they clinched up, Davis fired off a barrage of uppercuts, but quickly found himself eating knees from the taller Saunders. By the mid-way mark of the first, Davis' face was bloodied and battered. A minute later, Davis was on the wrong end of a brutal series of knees and flat on his back and out cold.
