"Give it to Hendo. I ain't losing. Give it to Hendo. I don't care either way. You can give it to Hendo and there will still be a belt when I get there. There will still be a belt when I get there. I don't care who the person is that has the belt but there will be a belt when I get to it and that's all that I'm concerned about. If somebody else gets to fight the champ before I do, that's fine with me."

-- He may be confident, but undefeated UFC light heavyweight Phil Davis has no problem waiting in line for a title shot. While speaking with MMAmania.com earlier today, "Mr. Wonderful" seemed to have no issue whatsoever with the recent news that Dan Henderson could potentially fight UFC 205-pound champion Jon Jones next, even if Davis were to upset current number one contender Rashad Evans at UFC on Fox 2 later this month. According to Dana White on the debut of "UFC Tonight," "Hendo" called him up "terrorizing him for another fight" just one week after his war with Mauricio Rua. Training out of Alliance MMA, Davis is still a work in progress, having not even competed in Ultimate Fighting Championship for two years. If the 2008 Division I wrestling champion can play spoiler to Rashad Evans' title aspirations, do you feel the potential extra time would do him good before earning a crack at UFC gold?
