Phil Davis Rooting for Rashad Evans, Not Jon Jones

As far as Phil Davis is concerned, he hopes Rashad Evans stops Jon Jones and claims the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 145: Jones vs. Evans. The card, which will be held in Atlanta, goes down April 21.

For Davis, a win by Evans would help the sting of suffering his first career loss to "Suga" last month at UFC on FOX 3. Evans claimed a decision victory over "Mr. Wonderful" in the main event.

"Part of me wants to say I don't think (Evans) will win, but honestly, I think I'm rootin' for Rashad," said Davis, while appearing on a recent episode of Inside MMA. "I pretty much have to, because I lost to him. So, at this point, I'm gonna say he's gonna win."

Davis left the fight Evans in relative good health, so a return to the Octagon could be in the near future for the former Penn State University wrestling standout. Davis is 9-1 in his brief MMA career.
