"I don't even know what my style is to tell you the truth. I definitely have a couple of different looks. The one you saw against Brian Stann, I call that ‘Phil.' It's very hard to finish, very rugged. The one I'm going to use in Abu Dhabi I call that ‘Dave,' it's more of a spring look, a little bit softer. I use it mostly just for catalogs and just a finesse kind of thing I do. I shouldn't even be talking about that yet, it's not even done yet ... You guys aren't going to want to call me Phil ‘Mr. Wonderful' anymore. It's going to be ‘Phil' and ‘Dave' and become two completely different people. I don't know what this joker is going to throw at me. I saw a training video of him throwing seven different kinds of smoke and that was in practice. The way I see, I'm not even going to play games with him. I'm going to go in there, get smooth on him, take him down nice and smooth lock up an arm triangle, maybe transition to armbar, bring him back up, knees, knees, knees, elbows, takedown, high kick, low kick, bada bing. Real solid technique stuff. That's all you're going to see out of me."
Up-and-coming light heavyweight prospect Phil, I mean uh, "Dave" Davis is unveiling a new look for his UFC 112 fight against Alexander Gustafsson when the two hook 'em up on the undercard in Abu Dhabi this Saturday (April 10). The artist formerly known as "Mr. Wonderful" was an impressive collegiate wrestler that has so far remained undefeated in his mixed martial arts endeavors (5-0) including his unanimous decision win over the venerable Brian Stann at February's UFC 109 event in Las Vegas. Is it too early to call him the future of the sport? Or should we wait and see if Dave is as good as Phil?
