Phil Davis worried about getting screwed by Brazilian judges in UFC 179 bout opposite Glover Teixeira


Don't leave it in the .. oh what's the point.

Top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight contender, Phil Davis, knows a thing or two about judges' decisions, having battled his way to the scorecards in his last three fights.

It's not unreasonable to think Davis, a decorated collegiate wrestler, will make it four straight when taking on the dangerous Glover Teixeira in the co-main event of UFC 179, which takes place on Oct. 27, 2014 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. But will he get a fair shake from the hometown officials?

"Mr. Wonderful" talks to Submission Radio:

"Do I worry about the judges? Absolutely, I worry about the judges. Is it gonna be a fair fight? No, it's not going to be a fair fight. Do I expect it to be, you know, uneven? Absolutely. But, you known at some point I gotta give these guys a little bit of credit, because they come over to America and they fight, and you very seldom hear them complain. Now having said that, yeah, there's a little bit of a home field advantage and I acknowledge that, but at the same time I'm ready to scrap."

Keep that chin tucked!

Davis (12-2) got worked by the resurgent Anthony Johnson at the UFC 172 pay-per-view (PPV) event earlier this year in Baltimore, Maryland, snapping a three-fight winning streak. That's the same event that saw Teixeira (22-3) go down on points against reigning division kingpin, Jon Jones.

Who is the contender and who is the pretender? We'll find out in just over two months.
