“I’d gotten hurt pretty bad before my last fight,” Davis begins. “Three weeks before the fight I had torn all the connective tissue between my tricep and rear deltoid. I continued to train and what ended up happening was, because of the way I punch, I ended up getting an impingement in the front of my shoulder. I really messed up my shoulder pretty bad and it was all down to the weightlifting I was doing at the time. I was lifting way, way too heavy.”
Now preparing to get back in the saddle and fight Brit hope Paul Kelly at UFC 89, Davis promises a new model. A new man. The slimline version.
