Mason Jones was left shell-shocked after losing his UFC debut and his perfect professional record.
The Welshman faced Mike Davis, an American who came into the contest 8-2 while Jones was a clean 10-0.
Mason Jones was laser focused before his fight
Mason Jones came right out of the gate with a spinning back kick to let Mike Davis know he’s in for a scrap. Davis managed to score a takedown half way through the round but he didn’t retain control for very long. The same happened a minute later and, one again, Jones broke free quickly.
Both men looked dangerous in the stand up and it was anyone’s fight. Jones looked to be the relentless aggressor and was laying in some nasty strikes, but Davis scored his third takedown of the round just when it looked like he was in trouble against the cage.
Mason Jones was the aggressor and walked forward the entire fight
Jones also took a clean knee at the end of the round, but he was firing back hooks like it didn’t affect him until the buzzer.
At the opening of the second round, Jones was looking for a straight when a leg kick sent him tumbling to the canvas. Like the previous round, he shot back up like it was nothing, but Davis certainly looked like he had the advantage.
Then Jones caught his American foe with some clean punches against the cage and the tide began to turn. Although Jones was throwing in volume, it seemed like Davis might have been doing the cleaner work when they stood in front of each other.
Either way, both men, Jones in particular, were walking through some seriously nasty shots.
Mike Davis was very good at using Mason Jones’s forward momentum against him
The first two rounds ended up belonging to Davis and by the time Jones truly stepped on the gas and outworked his tiring opponent in the third, it was too late.
He ended up falling 28-29 across all three judges and moves to 10-1.
He’s only the second double-champion to make the jump from Cage Warriors in UFC history after he claimed the lightweight and welterweight titles. The other? Conor McGregor, of course.
After becoming a double champion, he signed a UFC contract 12 days later and has three more fights on his deal. The same four-fight deal McGregor signed when he entered the UFC.
The violent war was written all over Mason Jones’ face
Mason Jones was understandably gutted after losing a hard fought battle with Mike Davis
