The former UFC light heavyweight champion took Davis to school for five rounds in a rather forgettable main event.
Davis has proven that he is a legitimate top-10 talent, but he didn't seem ready for the upper-echelon level of competition.
There are top-10 level fighters, and then there are guys like Evans, Jon Jones, Dan Henderson, Lyoto Machida, Shogun Rua and Quinton Jackson.
At just 27 years of age, Davis has more than enough time to make the necessary adjustments and come back stronger.
The UFC will have to make a very difficult decision when deciding on Davis' next opponent.
Do you put him against another upper-echelon opponent, or do you ease the foot off the gas and put him against notable, non-ranked opposition?
