Davis vs. Takimoto Wiki Update Wiki

In a Sengoku women's bout, American striker Amy Davis came out throwing low kicks early. Davis landed the greater number of strikes in the first half of the round, repeatedly landing on the outside of Takimoto's lead leg. Takimoto kept pressing forward, landing leg kicks of her own but with less power. Takimoto clinched with 40 seconds left in the round but was pushed away. A moment later Takimoto landed a beautiful left high kick to the face of Davis that saw her dazed and stumbled as the round ended. With Davis having controlled the round until that late, significant strike, it would clearly be a difficult round to score.

Takimoto came out more confidently in round two, clinching up but failing to secure a takedown. Low kicks were sent back and forth from each fighter. Takimoto landed a combination at the midway mark, and then thew another head kick that was this time blocked by Davis. Davis planted a straight right hand on Takimoto's chin with under a minute remaining, but Takimoto answered with a takedown. Davis quickly escaped and the fighters went at it for the remaining 15 seconds.

Two judges scored the bout a draw and under the must-decision rule of Sengoku, each had to pick a fighter. One went with Davis, and the other Takimoto. The third and final judge had it for Takimoto outright, giving her the victory by split decision.

Commentators Frank Trigg and Michael Schiavello questioned the decision. Indeed, Davis had the crisper kickboxing technique throughout the bout and appeared to land the higher volume of clean strikes. Takimoto's big high kick and aggressiveness in round two may have been enough to sway two of the judges.
