    Oh wow awesome! Phil Davis is on that card, he always has exciting fights!
    Is a phrase I have never uttered in my life. He's running his mouth, making comments that are more interesting then his fights. And a win against a not top 10 Rumble will probably move him one fight away from a title shot. dude has great wrestling, but his stand up sucks and he hasn't impressed me much lately.

    You do realize that Davis is a part of the reason that Gus has improved so much in the last few years right ?

    its to bad he only gets the upper hand on Jones in telephone calls. And not where it counts.

    Now if only Goose and Davis were one in the same....right?

    I wouldn't say he hasn't beaten anybody, but....

    If you assume (like I do) that Lil Nog is done, than Phil Davis hasn't beaten a fighter currently in the UFC LHW division since Goose.

    I'd say finishing Goose is more than anyone else in the division can say they've done. Bones can't even say that and he's been a buzzsaw at LHW.
    You say shark I say hey man, Jaws was never my scene and I don't like Star Wars

    Absolutely, just like it's not his fault that other guys he beat are no longer with the UFC.

    It's a great feat no doubt, but it was over 4 years ago when both were very green.

    He has victories over Lil Nog, Machida, and Goose. I can't think of a single fighter who can make that claim.

    But what he doesn't have is that IT factor.

    He has solid grappling...and thats about it. His stand up hasn't progressed very well at all. I can't remember the last time he was in an exciting fight. He's a talented, boring, vanilla fighter.

    Which is why he's talking shit to Bones, trying to drum up interest in a fight that nobody has any interest in seeing right now.

    It's very Sonnen-esque. And I think thats what bothers me.

    But thats what Dana wanted right?

    I completely agree.

    I'm just trying to keep it in perspective when people try to discredit everything on either side.

    He still moves very robotically....is that a word....and looks very uncomfortable doing anything other than grappling and scrambling. I had high hopes for him after he subbed Gus but he's kind of stayed flat. Even bader's standup has progressed more over the years than Phil's.

    I can't see Davis beating anyone who can nullify his wrestling....Cormier, Jones, and Evans immediately come to mind.

    I think Rumble handles him, and vaults back into the UFC limelight again. I would not discount AJ's grappling, for me his big question is still his gas tank.

    dude has great wrestling, but his stand up sucks and he hasn't impressed me much lately.
    He reminds me of another vanilla fighter who talks a lot...

    Yes. But at least I find his smack a bit less rehearsed [read: plagiarized] and refreshing.

    But thats what Dana wanted right?
    sadly, yes. Vince McMahon, too.
