Davis: Rashad Evans can't talk me out of my gameplanPosted on January 23, 2012, 08:41 AM by Anton Gurevich
“You can’t psych me out of my game, if that’s what he was trying to do,” said Davis. “I have a game plan, and nobody can talk me out of that. That includes everything. I’m not going to do just one thing. There’s nobody in the UFC that I can look at and say ‘you know what, I’m 100-percent just going to stand with you, I’m 100-percent just going to do jits with you, I’m 100-percent going to wrestle you.’
“No way. I’m going to beat you with everything, I’m going to beat you everywhere.” - MMAWeekly.com.
This weekend's main event participant Phil "Mr. Wonderful" Davis will look to spoil Rashad Evans' plans of finally getting inside the Octagon with the reigning UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon "Bones" Jones. According to Davis, Rashad Evans has no chance to mess with his mindset, which eventually will be the key to victory on Saturday, at the United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Davis made a breakthrough year back in 2010, fighting four times inside the UFC Octagon. NCAA Division I All-American defeated the former WEC Light Heavyweight champion Brian Stann and the current Top 10 UFC 205'er Alexander Gustafsson in his first two bouts in the UFC, then adding two more victories against Rodney Wallace and Tim Boetsch (via 'Mr. Wonderful' submission). Davis competed only once in 2011, edging Antonio Rogerio Nogueira via Unanimous Decision at Fight Night 24. Little Nog is currently the most prestigious victory on Phil Davis' record, as the undefeated prospect will be looking to prove on Saturday that he's more than a third man behind Rashad Evans and Dan Henderson.
