There have been two young talents rocketing up the ranks of the UFC’s light heavyweight division over the past couple of years. One of those is current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, the other is Phil Davis.
As soon as Jones won the belt with a dismantling of Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at UFC 128, the questions have been tossed out to both he and Davis about a future showdown. Jones, of course, is already paired up with Rashad Evans in his first title defense, and Davis was riding into his Saturday night bout with Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
After winning a unanimous decision over Nogueira at UFC Fight Night 24 in Seattle, Davis still didn’t have a lot to say about Jones, other than to convey that if the UFC matches them up, they’ll fight.
Davis did have quite a bit to say about his three-round performance against Nogueira. Check out the full video of Davis fielding questions from the media…
