For some reason, Evans rubs people the wrong way. A lot of fans just want to see him lose and pay good money every time he fights to see it happen.
Lucky for Evans, he is a great fighter and knows how to keep winning no matter what his opponent tries.
He won't be the fan favorite when he faces off with the likable Phil Davis, but he will be the favorite to win the fight.
Davis was compared in the beginning of his career to Jon Jones, which was a little unfair to both men, as Jones is the more complete fighter and a unique champion to say the least.
Even though he has a ways to go, Davis is still a great wrestler and has shown it in the cage.
Evans has a wrestling background as well and he is a better all-around fighter. Evans has also fought recently, which means that he won't be fighting cage rust like he did last time in his fight with Tito Ortiz.
The wild cards are Evans attitude and Davis's growth since their last fights, respectively. Evans has gotten more cocky with every win he gets and its hard to believe that his attitude won't create holes in his game sooner or later.
Davis has been growing and learning. He shouldn't have been compared to Jon Jones, but that doesn't mean he isn't a phenom with a quick learning curve.
Expect Evans to underestimate Davis in this match-up, only to realize too late that he should have given his opponent more respect when he loses by majority decision.
