UFC 123 medical staff does a not-so-'Wonderful' job of examining Phil Davis ...

... Missing the two-inch gash on his shin following a Nov. 20 submission victory over Tim Boetsch.

"It didn’t hurt at all. You walk off the stage, and the doctor’s like, ‘does anything hurt?’ I’m like, ‘no bro, I feel awesome, I just won.’ Then you go into the back and the doctors ask again like, ‘is anything hurt?’ They sit you down; they’re checking you out. I missed it, the UFC doctors missed it, and we saw a little blood trickling, but neither I nor the doctor had any idea it was as bad as it was. Thank God I didn’t go home like that. Knowing me being me, I wouldn’t have gotten medical attention right away and I would have gangrene and I’d probably lose my foot or something."

UFC light heavyweight standout Phil Davis tells MMA Weekly Radio that a large cut on his shin, suffered in his UFC 123 submission win over Tim Boetsch back on Nov. 20, somehow went unnoticed during his post-fight medical examination at the Palace of Auburn Hills in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. "Mr. Wondeful" needed 36 stitches to close the wound and now looks forward to getting back into the Octagon to continue his ascension through the 205-pound ranks.
