Assunção vs. Davis Wiki Update Wiki

The sixth and final preliminary card bout on WEC 52 saw experienced veterans Raphael Assuncao and LC Davis take the cage. After winning his first two WEC fights Assuncao dropped a pair and was 2-2 in the organization. Davis was a more impressive 3-1 with the WEC yet was coming off a disappointing fast submission loss to Josh Grispi in a top-contender fight.

The first round saw Assuncao sprawl out of a Davis takedown attempt and latch on a guillotine and then transition to an armbar that Davis escaped from. After another unsuccessful takedown attempt from Davis, Assuncao landed a groin strike that briefly paused the bout. A relatively even second half of the round was capped off by Assuncao throwing Davis to the ground.

Davis was more effective with his striking game in round two, however Assuncao was able to repeatedly clinch and take to the fight to the ground and find a home for some of his punches late in the round.

In round three, Assuncao avoided being put on his back and held a slight advantage in the striking department. A takedown for Assuncao and continued ability to control where the fight took place likely sealed the win for the Brazilian.

All three judges scored the fight 30-27, giving Raphael Assuncao a much-needed unanimous decision victory.
