UFC 163’s Phil Davis ‘Will Not Settle For Anything Less’ Than A Win

UFC 163’s Phil Davis ‘Will Not Settle For Anything Less’ Than A Win

Phil Davis has won two fights since a no-contest and a loss.

Now, with a chance to score a victory over a former UFC light heavyweight champion in Lyoto Machida tonight at UFC 163, “Mr. Wonderful” is fully-set on making his mark.

“I want to beat him because that’s what I’ve set out to do. When you’re willing to sacrifice everything to win, you will figure out a way to win on the spot,” said Davis, in an interview with the UFC’s website. “My mind is set on winning and I will not settle for anything less.”

Davis’ lone loss in his career came at the hands of Rashad Evans. He is a former NCAA wrestling champion and is the only man to defeat current No. 1 contender Alexander Gustafsson to date.

Machida, though, would be the first former UFC champion on the resume of Davis if he is able to score the victory.

“I don’t need to stress over how to beat ‘The Dragon,'” Davis said. “I’m good. I’m not worried about whether I have skills or not.”
