Insulting your opponent, or "talking up the fight," is part of the job being in the UFC, Rashad Evans believes.

"It's like personal, but not really personal-personal," Evans (16-1-1 MMA, 11-1-1 UFC) said today during a pre-event press conference in support of UFC on FOX 2, which takes place Saturday at Chicago's United Center and airs live on FOX.

Then he proceeded to put in a good day's work against Phil Davis (9-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC), who stands between him and a shot at the light-heavyweight title.

Davis got him working early when the topic of wrestling was brought up. He had previously asserted that he would have won if the two had met in college while he was at Michigan State and Davis was at Penn State.

As a four-time Division I All-American and NCAA champion, the normally congenial Davis took humorous exception to the claim.

"Cocaine's a helluva drug," he said. "And it's crazy what the kids do nowadays. I encourage imagination, and it's good that he has that, but no. He'll never beat me in wrestling – not thumb wrestling, not anything of the sort."

Clearly agitated, Evans corrected Davis when he tried to assert that they wrestled in the same division (Evans competed at 174 pounds while Davis was at 197 pounds) and said Davis won his NCAA title on a "soft" year in competition.

So true.

He repeats the same thing over and over again. It was the same thing with Jones and Rampage as well.

Maybe Dana could get Chael to run some trash talking classes!

So everyone that was to face Rashad has been scared. Rampage was scared, then Jones and now Davis. Sure Rashad, sure.

I think Rashad and Phil were forced into this because Sonnen and Bisping are being pu**ies.
