With Jon Jones sidelined for up to six months with a torn ligament in
his right hand, fast-rising UFC light heavyweight prospect Phil Davis was called on to meet Rashad Evans at UFC 133.
On Wednesday, UFC president Dana White praised "Mr. Wonderful" for his decision.
However, White stopped short of promising Davis a title shot with a win
but admitted Evans does risk his standing in the title picture should he
come up short against his undefeated foe.
