Evans picking Johnson to smash, KO Davis


In the co-main event of UFC 172, Phil Davis takes on Anthony Johnson in an intriguing matchup of styles. Johnson is a former welterweight who has a solid wrestling background and heavy hands; Davis is a stud wrestler who is starting to learn striking.

As a fellow light heavyweight in the UFC, Rashad Evans recently gave his take on the fight:

"AJ is going to be tough. AJ is going to be up there. I think AJ is going to be one of the best guys in the division. I think he is going to smash Phil Davis. I believe he is going to smash him. I love Phil Davis progression. I think Phil has come along and he is starting to come into his own as a fighter and starting to figure out his game a little more which has been impressive, but I think he's not ready for somebody like AJ. He is going to be too physical. AJ is going to be too strong and he hits like hard, hard. I think he is going to knock Phil out."

He has fought Davis and sparred AJ a lot, pretty sure he is being honest when he is saying Rumble is the stronger guy.Don't forget Shad wrestlefucked Davis to a living death, Rumble can probably wrestle as good as Shad and will be throwing heaters with his fists and legs the whole fight.Look for Rumble to put Davis away in the second.
