Seeing the build-up, I love Phil Davis confidence level.

The future of LHW division is clear. Jon Jones, Phi Davis and Alexander Gustafsson.

On paper, Rashad does have the experience factor and the wrestling to counter Davis main skills. However, he hasn't anyone in MMA with the wrestling skills possess by Phil.

On top of that, his last fight was a "not so impressive" victory over Tito Ortiz.

So for this fight, I am pulling for Phil Davis.

Why was Rashad's win over Ortiz not impressive? I thought it was a very impressive win by Rashad.

I think Rashad wins tonight by being a more explosive athlete and having superior striking and head movement. If Davis can put Rashad on his back though he can make this very interesting.

I'm fine with either guy winning. I really want to see Evans get his title shot, while Davis is just an awesome guy in general. Just gonna sit back and enjoy this fight.

Won't be an easy fight, but Rashad will find a way to win.

Exclamation

Hopefully Phil has picked up some real stand-up from Gustaffson.

Not that we're gonna see him get a KO or nothing. He just needs enough to make his takedown attempts less telegraphed.

If he pulls off the upset, it's gonna be with this grappling.

Maybe... MAYBE even a sub.

MOO!
