UFC 159 features a classic wrestler vs. jiu-jitsu fight when Brazilian Vinny Magalhaes takes on Phil Davis. Magalhaes is a jiu-jitsu black belt under the famed Royler Gracie and medaled in both the 2009 and 2011 ADCC Submission World Wrestling Championships. Phil Davis won a 2008 NCAA title wrestling for Penn State and was a four-time All-American.

Although both have accomplished success at different high levels of grappling, on Saturday they fight in the Octagon as mixed martial artists and Magalhaes believes in a fight, the advantage is his:

"I feel there's so many different ways that I can win this fight," he said. "It's not that it's an easy fight. Phil is a great athlete. There's a reason why he's No. 8 in the official rankings. There's a reason why people think it's such a mismatch. He's a great athlete. But there's so many holes in his game, and I feel like his game is the perfect style for me. If he takes me down, 10 seconds is enough for me to submit him."

Davis is a 3-to-1 favorite in the fight. But Magalhaes, who comes in on a six-fight win streak of four submissions and a pair of knockouts since his most recent loss more than three years ago, plans to turn the odds – and his detractors – on their ears.

"I'm always on the Internet, and people are saying like, 'Oh, it's going to be a sloppy kickboxing match, and then Phil might get a takedown the last few seconds,'" he said. "That's not how it's going to go."

Why does he keep saying "if he takes me down"? Why would Davis bring the fight to the ground? Is Mag's striking a bigger threat to Davis?

I see Davis making this a bad kick boxing match

This is going to be an Alistair Overeem level of fail with all of Vinny's talk.

Vinny has better striking imo. Overall I think he's the better grappler as well.

Cardio advantage goes to Phil.. Longer the fight goes the more likely Phil wins a decision unless Vinny has hurt him bad earlier on. Phone Post

Davis' stand up hasn't impressed me in any of his fights. I think Vinny can win on the feet or from the bottom. Phil could just as easy get the UD or TKO though Phone Post 3.0

It's going to be a sloppy kickboxing match, and then Phil might get a takedown the last few seconds.

Phil Davis, though not highly decorated in sub grappling, actually has really good MMA submissions. He's won 4 out of his last 8 by submission.

We have seen wrestlers submit bjj experts many times now at high level MMA, so don't pretend it's impossible. MMA is not sub grappling.
