Bellator 163: LHW Champ Liam McGeary vs Phil Davis + Scott Coker Full Media Call

0

MMA H.E.A.T. brings you the complete Bellator 163 pre-fight media call with Bellator Light Heavyweight Champ Liam McGeary, challenger Phil “Mr. Wonderful” Davis and Bellator President Scott Coker. The fight takes place Friday, November 4, 2016 at the Mohegan Sun Arena.

Liam McGeary
Boasting a remarkable unblemished mark of 11-0, McGeary is the current Bellator MMA Light Heavyweight Champion. On November 4, he will return to the same venue where he was crowned king of the division back in 2015. The 33-year-old British striker will attempt to defend his title for the second time since claiming the belt at “Bellator 134: British Invasion.” McGeary has finished his opponent in 10 of his 11 career bouts, including eight first round wins – most recent one coming against MMA legend Tito Ortiz.

Phil Davis
One of the more outspoken athletes in MMA, Davis comes in having won three consecutive contests and seven of his last nine. In addition, the 31-year-old has finished his opponent in half of his 16 career wins, including five submission victories. Davis earned his shot at McGeary and the highly coveted 205-pound belt with a key win over “King Mo” at “Bellator 154: Davis vs. King Mo” earlier this year. A 13-fight veteran of the UFC, Davis will likely not be fazed by the bright lights of the Mohegan Sun Arena, in what is possibly the biggest challenge of his illustrious career. Look for the former NCAA National Champion wrestler to take this contest to the canvas and display his impeccable ground game in front of a rowdy Connecticut crowd.
