Without question the most anticipated matchup on Saturday night is in the main event, with undefeated Phil Davis taking on former light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans for a potential shot at title-holder Jon Jones.
Both Davis and Evans are widely considered two of the top wrestlers in the division which makes this fight a battle of strength and will. At 5-0 in the UFC, Davis has been on a tear running through some of the division's top contenders in Brian Stann, Alexander Gustafsson, and most recently Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.
Evans, on the other hand, hasn't been healthy enough to enjoy that same type of success. Knee and thumb injuries have kept him out of the octagon since his fight against Tito Ortiz last August.
Initially this fight was supposed to take place in August at UFC 133 but injuries on the part of both fighters caused the five month delay. So, it's no secret that this fight has been a long-time coming and both fighters have been chomping at the bit to get things underway. Neither man was hesitant to discuss their wrestling credentials at a heated pre-fight press conference.
