UFC Quick Quote: Phil Davis is a little bit afraid of Rashad Evans

"When it comes to MMA wrestling, he’s definitely not a better wrestler when it comes to that. That bothers him and it actually makes him a little bit afraid as well. When he gets hit on his feet and he can’t go to his safety zone, which is on the ground, then he starts going into panic mode. When you start going into panic mode, you start thinking about ‘oh my God I’m getting hit, oh my God I’m losing the fight, oh my God there isn’t anywhere in this fight where I can go where I’m safe, let me find a way out of this.’ Then you start looking for your way out. I’m not worried about getting taken down. I feel pretty comfortable on my back. I feel like there’s really nobody that can hold me down. I feel like I can get up on anybody, and I have gotten up on almost everybody I go with, so I’m not really worried about being taken down. Cause if he takes me down, he’s going to have to keep taking me down because I’m going to keep getting back up."

Rashad Evans may have Phil Davis quaking in his boots on Saturday night (Jan. 28, 2012) in the main event of UFC on FOX 2 from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. "Suga" told MMA Weekly that all "Mr. Wonderful" has is some decent wrestling, which unfortunately won't be enough to keep him down or win the fight, especially when Davis gets "hit on the feet" and goes into "panic mode." Anyone expecting Wrestlemania in the "Windy City?" Or a quick finish by one of these two light heavyweight contenders? Hear what Davis had to say about Evans' bluster right here.
