Phil Davis–National Champion to World Champion?

UPDATE 2:18 PM: A little late on the bell, but results are here! Phil Davis won by submission at 4:55 in the first round last night. This is a very impressive victory, and it has been speculated that the win will put him in a main card fight for his next Pay Per View appearance.

Phil Davis, former Penn State wrestler and 2008 National Champion, is participating in what many people believe will be his breakout match in the Octagon tomorrow night at Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 112.

He has certainly earned his new nickname of “Mr. Wonderful,” compiling a perfect 5-0 record, including a 41-second knockout in his first professional fight and an impressive unanimous decision victory over the World Extreme Cagefighting light-heavyweight champion. Insiders say he will be the next big thing in UFC and will make a huge statement this weekend when he takes on Alexander “The Mauler” Gustafsson.

If you can get Pay Per View on Saturday night, make sure to root on Davis as he starts on his journey to become a champion once again.
