"I told [Joe Silva] I was interested in fighting Phil Davis, so he said he would call him. [Phil Davis] said he’d take the fight; he said, 'Rock with it,' so I said, 'Cool' and that was it. (Davis) needs to be ready, in general, to go through the exchanges. I don’t think he is as threatening to me with his wrestling, as he was to the other two guys. They were more worried about it than I’ll be, being that I come from a wrestling background. He’s a real gifted wrestler, but I’m not worried about that in the fight. If it’s him wrestling me to death, I’m not worried about that."
UFC light heavyweight Rodney Wallace is not concerned about Phil Davis' pedigree or hype. When his original opponent Stanislav Nedkov had to withdraw with just two weeks to go until the fight, "Sho'Nuff the Master" asked specifically for Davis. Although he is currently 0-2 with the organization and 9-2 overall, Wallace may be thinking about the future with his request. Will "Mr. Wonderful" make him ancient history?
