Bellator 253: “Sky’s the Limit” for Undefeated Joey Davis


Joey Davis continued his winning ways at Bellator 253.

Taking on a former Cage Fury FC champ in Bobby Lee, Davis once again cruised to victory thanks to his dominant wrestling. This time around, it was a unanimous decision win for “Black Ice,” who was undefeated in wrestling, and remains so in MMA.

“I thought I was going to be more precise on my feet, but he was a heck of an opponent,” Davis (8-0) told media outlets including Cageside Press following the fight. “He came out ready to go, and that’s all I can ask for from an opponent. He had me on my P’s and Q’s, and I just went back to the drawing board.”

However, the win does show one thing, said Davis. “Beating a champion from another organization, that just shows what I’m capable of, in eight fights now. Sky’s the limit for me.”

Ahead of the fight, and post-fight as well, Davis spoke of “things I still want to accomplish in life.” At the same time, he’s a “training wreck — all I do is train 24/7.” But Davis wants to give back as well. Later on, he’d explain that “growing up, I was always doing wrestling camps, I was always helping the community out. It was just something that was just brought to my attention at a young age.”

Now that he’s a professional fighter with Bellator MMA, Davis believes that accomplishing those goals will be more fun. “And much easier if I just keep a zero next to my name,” he added.
