Davis: Magalhaes 'not on my level'

source: mmafighting.com

Davis seems to recognize the disparity between the two. "If I say simply, 'he's not on my level, he doesn't deserve to be fighting me,' I feel like that sounds worse than it actually is," Davis said. "It almost sounds like I'm talking about his character as a person rather than his fighting skills, so, I'm going to word it a little differently and say what he's done in the UFC, which is one win, I guess you can count his old two losses, doesn't really warrant him a fight with me. But, you know, I don't do matchmaking, that's entirely up to Joe Silva, he's a genius, I'm just going to go with what he says. I don't question him. The man knows what he's doing."

But that doesn't mean Davis won't be motivated for the fight when the Octagon gate locks.

"I'm up for every fight," Davis said. "My only hope is, I hope the evening of April 27, when he gets back to his hotel room, I hope he doesn't think to himself, what did I do this for? Why did I call this man out, it doesn't make any sense? I could have fought somebody who wasn't top ten, I could have fought someone who wasn't top five, I could have fought somebody I could have beat and came home without two black eyes and a bruised ego. Why did I call this guy out? I hope he doesn't say that, but most likely he will."

Vinny needs to go train with Maia and learn the secrets of the Maia Steamroll.

I disagree strongly with Phil. UFC has a history of giving champions from other organizations title shots, so his argument is invalid. Davis is definitely a physical beast, but Vinny is no slouch either. Phil is pretty one-dimensional. I am really rooting for Vinny to come into the division and make a splash. I hope he is working on his striking and wrestling.

Vinny's going to wake some guys up, because he'll finish Davis.

WTF UG NLOG?You say respect fighters, and disrespect them yourselves by blatantly misquoting them? Kirik apologizes every week for your fucked up, lying thread titles. I remember not toblong ago Kirik coning out and making a personal apology to his handler DFW for misquoting him, and promised not to continue doing it as it came after a string of misquotes...we all questioned how long it would last...they made it maybe two weeks. Fucking joke.The first three lines Davis explains why he doesn't want to say exactly what you quoted him as saying.Disrespectful, bullshot writing.VTFD. Multiple times. Fuck off UG Nlog.

With wins over Gustafsson and Lil Nog, I'd say he is Top 5. Ignore what the "official" UFC rankings say.
