Davis: I will destroy [Jon Jones]


Damon Martin via FOX Sports

Phil Davis has a tough task in front of him at UFC 172 taking on Anthony Johnson, but has his eyes set on a future showdown with champion Jon Jones:

"My thing is I don't like to say what people don't deserve or say someone's not good in order to build myself up.  That doesn't make me any better of a fighter if I say 'oh Jones sucks'.  Absolutely not," Davis told the Great MMA Debate podcast.

"Jones is young, he's incredibly talented, he works hard and he's a champion.  I have nothing but great things to say about him.  Having said that -- I will destroy him."

Davis has a really unique set of skills. His length, his offensive grappling game, he flashes nice speed (his kicks are so fast, both low and high) and he seems to come to fights in shape, although I think he was doing great against Rashad early, and Rashad strategically made him expend a lot of energy and gassed him early.His tools are as strong as anyone's. If he can put it all together I think he can be champ.

Who has he destroyed, he got schooled by Rashad and a gift over Machida.

DC is the #2 HW so obviously he is a serious threat. It would be crazy to think otherwise. Anybody that can handle the monsters at HW should be taken seriously at a lower weight class. Personally while I think Gus is a threat I think that both Jones and Gus learned a lot about each other in that fight. When they fight again they are both going to different fighters from the first time. It could be very interesting. Glover is a far bigger threat than many are giving credit for as well. Davis is pretty far down the list which is probably why he is trying to stir the pot. Unfortunately for him he has Rumble to deal with and is really not ready for Jones.

No he won't. I'm not a fan of Jones but no he won't.

I disagree I think Gus is the biggest threat, as u seen from his last fight with jones that was very close! DC I don't see as a threat to jones I think glover is more of a threat to DC !

God damn lol I feel bad for jones, I think that caught him from left field. But I guess Davis has to do what he has to do to prove dw wrong.

I like Davis but he is not on the same level as Jones. Not yet anyway.
