Davis: I’d fight with Magalhaes even on the parking lot
After the victory over Igor Pokrajac, Vinny Magalhaes is tossed around a match with Phil Davis. At least his tweets suggests so. And just because of that, Davis wants to enter the octagon with Brazilian and teach him a lesson about fight.
"I had to double check if this guy does even exist in the UFC. It comes down to this: You're talking? You've got to be walking. He hasn't gotten the whole walking thing down.", Davis said.
Not long after Davis' submission win over Prado, he stepped in for Chael Sonnen to fight Forrest Griffin at UFC 155, the promotion's year-end card in Las Vegas. But the month of the fight, Griffin was sidelined with a knee injury.
"The problem with this fight game is, a lot of people like to talk, but not a lot of people like to fight," Davis said. "And if you call somebody out, you are obligated to fight them. That's the way this thing works. He called me out while I was still in Brazil. Forrest Griffin got hurt (and Magalhaes) doesn't want to fight me on three weeks' notice. At that point, you need to shut up. But that's part of the fight game – guys like to talk.", Davis said on MMAjunkie.com Radio.
Davis has an answer for everyone in doubt about him fighting against Vinny Magalhaes. "If I see him in the parking lot at the UFC, we'll fight. Once I say we'll fight, it will happen when I see your face. There is no three weeks' notice, none of this silliness. If you can't fight, say you can't fight. But if you want to fight, then you have to take the fight."
