UFC Quick Quote: Phil Davis would fight training partner Alexander Gustafsson (again) for Light Heavyweight title

Esther Lin for MMA Fighting

Training partners Phil Davis and Alexander Gustafsson have no issues fighting each other one more time inside the Octagon as long as it’s for the light heavyweight strap.

"Yes. We discussed this. We have the attitude that iron sharpens iron. I helped him with his wrestling and he's helped me with my overall game."

-- While Phil Davis isn't guaranteed next crack at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight title following his controversial win over Lyoto Machida at UFC 163, "Mr. Wonderful" doesn't have any problems facing Alexander Gustafsson for the belt should "The Mauler" defeat Jon Jones at UFC 165 on Sept. 21, 2013, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Davis and Gustafsson have fought once before, with Davis choking out the towering Swede in the first round at UFC 112. But, that was three years ago and the two have since joined forces, training together constantly at Alliance MMA. But, that won't stop them from punching each other in the face one more time as Davis recently revealed to FUEL TV -- they have mutually agreed to face each other again as long as a world title is on the line. Should Gus defeat "Bones" and Davis find himself as the No. 1 contender at 205 pounds, who wins the rematch?
