Tijdens UFC on Fox 2 op 28 januari 2012 in het United Center in Chicago, Illinois, neemt Phil Davis het op tegen Rashad Evans.

In een interview laat Davis weten dat Evans nog steeds de  “same old fighter” is zoals hij altijd is geweest.

Phil Davis

“I think he’s the same old Rashad – which is very dangerous, very skilled, and I think he’s definitely gotten better over the years, but I think he’s the same old guy. … The problem is, we’re both known for excellent wrestling, but only one of us actually has it. I’m thinking about using the wrestling and mixing it up and doing what I can. There’s no point in my career where I plan on abandoning wrestling. It’s always a part of my gameplan, it’s who I am. It’s my strong-suit. That’s something I’m going to go into every fight making my opponent respect.”
