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.
