Phil Davis Wants Glover Teixeira As His Next Fight

“I want to fight Glover Teixeira,”

“I don’t wish him harm or wish he’s injured,” Davis said. “I just have this sneaky suspicion.”

“I’m just going to tell you the short version,” Davis said. “Alexander Gustafsson put tips all over that boy. [Jones] doesn’t know up from down, left from right. So I really don’t see him wanting to get back in there with anybody – definitely not Alexander. I don’t even think he wants to get back in there with Glover Teixeira – bless his little heart.

“But look, I like [Teixeira]. He’s a cool cat, but this is what we do. I’m sure he doesn’t care. He’s willing to mix it up with anybody, too.”

For those who do not know, Glover Teixeira’s upcoming title shot against champ Jon Jones at UFC 172. So obliviously he wanted to fight him then that would be a way’s off for him to fight. If Teixeira wins the fight then there is no way Phil Davis would be getting a world title shot just because he called him out. Many factors going into this fight.

“Healthy as a bumble bee,” he said. “I’m ready to get in there and do what I do. But there are weird things going on right now, and I’m not sure there’s a lot of guys that are ready to mix it up. I think the matchmakers are waiting for a couple of people, and when those guys become available, I’ll get matched up.”

“I will gladly step in and fight Glover, and for the second time, be the No. 1 contender, and hopefully, that will earn me a title shot,” he said. “But in the meantime, I’ll fight anybody. You name them, I’ll fight them.”

UFC 172 goes down April 26th with Jon Jones defending his title against Glover Teixeira. Tickets are on sale now.
