UFC 145: Phil Davis is rooting for Rashad Evans to defeat Jon Jones

Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans was recently made official as the main event title fight for UFC 145: "Jones vs. Evans" on April 21, 2012, live from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia.

And "Suga" has an unlikely cheerleader in his corner.

That's because Phil Davis, who was unable to stop Evans' date with destiny, is now hoping his former rival can break some "Bones" down south to ease the pain of watching his undefeated streak go up in smoke last month at UFC on Fox 3.

From his interview with Inside MMA:

"Good question. See, part of me wants to say I don't think he will win, but honestly, I think I'm rootin' for Rashad. I pretty much have to, because I lost to him. So, at this point, I'm gonna say he's gonna win."

Hear "Mr. Wonderful" talk "Jones vs. Evans" and a whole lot more, after the jump.
