Quoteworthy:

"As a grappler, I would rate myself as pretty good. And as an MMA fighter overall, I'd say -- average? Average, I guess. I'm still pretty raw. I'm still coming around. I'm very green in a lot of areas ... I just feel like I'm a one-sided fighter still. I'm not a complete MMA fighter. I'm still a wrestler. I'll be a better MMA fighter whenever I can mix my wrestling into my stand-up, into my jiujitsu, seamlessly. I don't know. I'm good at stuff -- but not really. You know what I mean? I don't get things on the first try. I don't think [Tom Boetsch is] necessarily weak anywhere. He's pretty well-rounded. He's a pretty good grappler. He's a pretty good wrestler. He's a pretty good stand-up fighter. I think, if anything, that I do better than him, is the craziness factor. Not necessarily craziness -- that unpredictability. I think I'm a little bit more unpredictable. And if you take a guy like him, he's very solid on his fundamentals. I'm not as solid on my fundamentals, so he doesn't quite know what I will do."

Up-and-coming 205-pound prospect Phil Davis (7-0) may not feel as "Wonderful" as people make him out to be, but takes comfort in the fact that come fight night he can still be crazier than a shithouse rat. His UFC 123 bout against Tim Boetsch will be the fourth in his 2010 fight campaign and if he's successful on Saturday night (Nov. 20), expect a major bump up in competition for 2011. Okay Maniacs, where do you rank Davis in the crowded light heavyweight division?
