Phil Davis has a kinesiology degree from Penn State. He's a former NCAA wrestling champion. When he's not training, he likes to spend his free time at the beach near his home in San Diego or return to Harrisburg, Pa., where he was born and raised, to visit family and friends.
But at the mere mention of these things or anything other than Saturday night Davis comes across as distracted, disinterested and disengaged. He has a one-track mind.
Just nine fights and three years into his mixed martial arts career, Davis is facing the fight of his life. On Saturday (8 p.m. ET on FOX), he meets Rashad Evans in the main event of UFC on FOX at the United Center in Chicago. It's a bout that either will push him to the upper level of the UFC's light heavyweight division or knock him down a couple of rungs.
"It's really important for me," Davis said. "You have these important fights that people are going to remember you by, and this is one of them."
