Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.01.2014
- Phil Davis is set to face Anthony Johnson at UFC 172, and while he plans to show up for his fight, he is not sure that Jon Jones will defend his title against Glover Teixeira on the show. Here is what Davis had to say….
"He may not fight at UFC 172. It's not too late for him to back out of this one. It's happened before. I'm ready for a title shot whenever it's available. If he happens to back out of this fight for whatever reason, I'm willing to take on Glover Teixeira for an interim championship."
