Surging UFC light heavyweight contender Phil Davis gives The Fight Fix a "Wonderful" assessment of his Octagon skills as he heads into a UFC 133 main event opposite former 205-pound champion Rashad Evans on Aug. 6 in Philadelphia. The undefeated wrestler out of Penn State could potentially earn a title shot in early 2012 if he can prove he is indeed sweeter than "Suga" in the "City of Brotherly Love."

This will be an interesting wrestling match, I mean fight....

Since being KO'ed by Machida, Evans has regressed to being almost a pure wrestler again. See his fights with Rampage and Thiago Silva. And Davis' striking leaves a lot to be desired, IMO.

I think Rashad should take the decision but Davis might be able to outwrestle Rashad for three rounds, should be a real good wrestling match at worst.
