One of the sport’s rising stars, undefeated Phil Davis, a former Division I national champion wrestler from Penn State takes on Brazilian light heavyweight contender Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in Spike TV’s UFC Fight Night Live from the KeyArena in Seattle, Wash. tonight, March 26 at 10 p.m. ET. "Mr. Wonderful" talks to UFC Ultimate Insider Episode 31: (video)
"For me it's a cat and mouse game. It's them not knowing that gives me confidence. I think I'm the good natured guy that happens to beat people up in the Octagon. It's your job to tap and it’s my job to inflict discomfort. My record is 8-0; so far it's been pretty smooth."
"My ultimate goal in the UFC is to rain havoc on the rest of the division. Like a Chuck (Liddell) or Randy (Couture), GSP, Anderson (Silva), those guys that put a clear line between first and second. My next opponent is (Antonio) Rogerio Nogueira. You can never reach legendary status without going against someone who is a legend in the sport and he's definitely one of those guys."
"I've trained with Jon Jones and I've seen him just leap into the spotlight and just command respect. If I'm following his path, he set the bar pretty high. I want to take on whoever has the belt. I'm willing to go through anybody in my path to get there."
