Phil Davis
start of the video, on Rampage vs Hamill: "Main Event...ya know I'm not real good at pickin' and especially with guys I haven't trained with because I feel like when I train with a guy, I know what he's capable of doing to another guy.  These guys - I've just watched tape of them and watched them fight in person and I'm a big fan of both of them.  I watched actually a lot of Matt Hamill's tapes because I was scheduled to fight him at one point.  He has some great skills.  He has some great skills.  He's underrated.  I believe in this fight.  But having said that, Rashad, I mean Rampage, he's a monster man.  He's great at taking control of a fight.  Hes great at taking control of a fight.  His last fight against Rashad, 3rd period came around and he just took control.  It seemed like he was in control the entire fight because in that last period, he just dominated it and almost turned it around.  It' gonna be a crazy fight.  I really don't know who has it though.  I really don't.  I hate to be a buzz kill, but I don't know who has this one."

1:15 on Mir vs Nelson: "Mir versus Nelson.  I haven't trained with either one of those guys.  I like both of those guys.  They're funny dudes.  Both good jiu jitsu fighters, and I think what will make the difference in a fight like this is who can take it to the ground.  Neither one of them is are high level wrestlers.  They're both awesome on the ground, but not awesome at getting the other guy to the ground.   It might be a standup brawl.  That might end up being a standup fight.  In the striking, I would give Mir the speed advantage and I would give Nelson the power advantage.  That dude swings some hammers man.  Whoever gets that first couple of takedowns, whoever gets the first takedown is probably gonna win.  Look for that one in the first period.  Somebody gets that early takedown, that will set the tone for the entire fight."
