24 hours from his bout, UFC 159’s Phil Davis has just came under serious allegations. A report has just broke from TMZ (of course) that the fighter referred to as “Mr. Wonderful” may not be so wonderful after all. Legal documents obtained by the media company are said to tell a story of Davis brutalizing the mother of his child on numerous occasions during intercourse.
“According to legal docs — obtained by TMZ — Vantris Patterson claims Davis body slammed her on a couch with such force … when the couch slid into the wall paint came off. And Patterson says, Davis — aka Mr. Wonderful — would often choke her during intercourse, and when she’d plead with him to stop he’d respond, “Shut the f*** up, bitch.” She says Davis has threatened to kill her numerous times if she ever slept with another man.”
Davis has since came out, claiming his innocence, pointing the finger back at Patterson as the abusive one (she should be in the UFC then). The matter has been set for court in San Diego, CA on May 7. During that period, they are both fighting for returned custody of their child. The fighter is said to still be involved in tomorrows UFC 159 card versus submission specialist Vinny Magalhaes.
