Rashad Evans: Phil Davis looks like Arsenio Hall and John Salley had a baby

The UFC on Fox 2 comedy tour rolled on today with the pre-fight press conference designed to hype the "Evans vs. Davis" network televised event booked for Saturday night (Jan. 28, 2012) at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.

Middleweight rivals Chael Sonnen and Michael Bisping were slinging mud to the best of their ability; however, event headliner Rashad Evans may have had the line of the night with this gem he dropped on light heavyweight opponent Phil Davis.

And this time (thankfully) it had nothing to do with Penn State University or the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal.

"Phil can't punch nobody hard. Phil can't hit. Phil punch with his hands open and everything. He don't hit hard. He couldn't bust a grape. Phil lookin' like Arsenio Hall and John Salley had a baby."

Whoot! Whoot! Whoot!

Most mixed martial arts (MMA) fans should know who Arsenio Hall is (former actor and late night talk show host). But if you don't know who John Salley is, you can familiarize yourself with his body of work, after the jump.


From Wikipedia:

John Thomas Salley (born May 16, 1964) is a retired American professional basketball player, actor and talk show host. He was the first player in NBA history to play on three different championship-winning franchises.

After being drafted in the first round out of Georgia Tech in 1986, the 6'11" (2.11 m) Salley played both power forward and center for the Detroit Pistons, Miami Heat, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls, Panathinaikos BC and Los Angeles Lakers. He was a long-time host of the former Fox Sports Net show The Best Damn Sports Show Period.

The resemblance is uncanny!
