Phil Davis On Rashad Evans: He's Good, But I'm A Better Wrestler
Phil Davis will face the toughest test of his career on August 6th at UFC 133 when he takes on former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans as both fighter vie for a shot at current Champ Jon Jones.
Davis talked about his opponent this week and assessed his chances while speaking with Tatame.com:
And do you see your chances against Rashad? Do you believe you have better Wrestling skills than him?
I think he has pretty good Wrestling for MMA, but I guess I’m a little bit kind of a better wrestler, but he’s good in mixing the strikes in Wrestling, so it’s not bad. But I think I’m better.
And talking about a possible bout in the future between you and Jon Jones… How do you see that?
It’s good because Jon Jones has only been winning fights, so, you know, he wins and it’s good because he’ll say: ‘this guys has won all of all of his fights too’, so he’s doing that comparison now… It’s good.
Do you think you’re ready to become a UFC champion?
I feel it’s like one of those things you don’t know until you win a belt, I’ll only know it when I actually get it done.
