The first time I was in the vicinity of Phil Davis, I had to convince Pedro Carrasco from BJPenn.com that Davis was not Anthony Njokuani. To confirm my assumption, I walked up to this mysterious person and upon my approach, it was so obviously Phil Davis. In fact, it was silly for Pedro Carrasco to even mention that it could be Njokuani. I grabbed my camera, shoved it in Davis’ face and asked him what the science was behind the pink shorts. I also wanted to know how it felt that a multitude of people considered him to be ‘explosive’, and he told me. Unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to ask Davis the origin of his nickname, but the guys at Onward State took the inquiry right out of my mouth — is that even an expression?
I had a cat in college and his name was Mr. Wonderful. So I decided to name myself Mr. Wonderful, well not necessarily me, my friends decided to name me Mr. Wonderful after my cat after just after I started fighting.
It’s only a matter of time until Chael Sonnen takes the moniker of his dog, ‘Danger Waffles’ and implements it into his next fight. At least we can only hope.
