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. Now that Phil Davis is scheduled to face Rashad Evans at UFC on FOX 2 in 2012, people will hopefully stop confusing him for Anthony Njokuani — or Jon Bones Jones.
ESPN broke the news that Evans vs. Davis is slated to take place January 28th at UFC on FOX 2, which will hopefully resolve who will get their shot at the light heavyweight strap. Of course, that leaves Dan Henderson waving his hands in Temecula, California, screaming ‘MMA fans, were you not entertained!?’ Hendo is undoubtedly the unresolved piece of the 205lb puzzle that definitely needs to be accounted for in 2012. In a perfect world, we would see an immediate title unification bout between the Strikeforce and UFC light heavyweight champion. However, in the meantime we should just appreciate the illustration of Rashad Evans in the banner picture. [Source]
