Insert “Mr. Not-So-Wonderful” Pun Here: Phil Davis Accused of Domestic Violence, Custody Battle Set for May 7th

(Damn, a Penn State alum *and* a blue belt under Lloyd Irvin? This is not looking good, Phil…) 

I’m no The Mentalist (although I often get confused for him on the street. YOU DON’T KNOW.), but I always saw light heavyweight contender Phil Davis as a kind of introverted, dare I say “nerdy” guy who happens to be a freakishly gifted athlete. Despite the fact that he, you know, chokes dudes unconscious for a living, “Mr. Wonderful” always came off (to me, at least) as a guy who was ultimately harmless when he wasn’t locked in a cage with a dude trying to beat him within an inch of his life.

Well once again, it appears that I don’t know shit about shit. Just one day out from his UFC 159 battle with Vinny Magalhaes, Davis not only finds himself in the middle of a custody battle over his child, but refuting allegations of “crazy brutality, including violent sex” that said child’s mother believes stemmed from his martial arts career. TMZ reports:

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.

Now here’s the hook — Patterson claims Davis’ alleged propensity for violence has escalated because of his involvement in the UFC.  She says, “I am afraid that the numerous fights have negatively impacted his mental stability,” and she can’t defend herself because of his “increased strength and attacking ability.”

And if you think that’s crazy, just wait until you hear the allegations Davis lobbed back at Patterson in response…

Davis makes his own claims … that Patterson is the violent one who put a pic of a Glock up on Facebook and wrote, “… His day will come.”  He also says she texted him, “I can’t wait until the day you die so I can spit in ur face [painful and slow].”

It would be pretty obvious to start making comparisons between Davis and Brett Rogers here, but it should be noted that Davis hasn’t actually been charged with anything as of this write up. What could potentially play a factor in these “violent sex” allegations, however, is the fact that Davis is a blue belt under Lloyd Irvin. Yes, that Lloyd Irvin.

We’re not saying this tenuous connection proves Davis’ guilt in the matter, but at the same time, the influential ability of a coach is not something that should be taken lightly (ask anyone’s who ever played football under Mike Ditka) and given all the allegations being aimed at Irvin and his students in recent months, it’s a connection that will most surely come to surface in the couple’s custody battle on May 7th in San Diego. God damn it, did I just unintentionally provide the Culinary Union with another article to pull out-of-context quotes from? My bad, you guys.

As for how this will possibly affect Davis’ performance against Magalhaes tomorrow, well, I’ve already been pretty clear on that.

We will keep you updated on this story as it develops.

Matt Hughes on this subject: you're supposed to tag-team your wife with your brother, not choke her.

No word yet on who gets custody of Phil's child -
Mr_Misanthropy- April 27, 2013 at 4:28 am
What's a Vantris anyways? Isn't that a new Hyundai model or something?
smellypiratehooker- April 27, 2013 at 3:13 am
Now that's how you sink in a proper rear naked choke when you're going for the tap.
teep- April 26, 2013 at 6:24 pm
So, Matt Hughes isn't even going to get involved in the ethics of this.

I heard she is divorcing him because she thought she married Jon Jones.

DW calls TMZ on the issue:!id=0_1nrhn0p0

"Vantris said that Davis's recent bedroom behavior is in stark contrast to when he was competing in amateur wrestling, where he'd just lay on top of her for five minutes and then fell asleep, figuring he had done enough to finish."

She should know she has to tap out
masterbaitntackle- April 26, 2013 at 3:37 pm
Given the fact that Phil's a Pedophile State University alum, this could've been much much worse.....

Is Phil Davis goin' have to choke a bitch?

Side note, the bitches that like being they are fun...and they will just suck it even harder
Mr_Misanthropy- April 26, 2013 at 12:52 pm
Damn, with lats like that I bet Phil can slam the shit out of a bitch.

Besides, it's not a rape choke if you're not getting raped. Then it's a consensual sex choke.

The orange STATE PENN singlet won't be as flattering.
mookiestick- April 26, 2013 at 12:10 pm
Didn't happen. Her meal ticket is divorcing her. Women can be vile and venomous when they're being left. Most of us guys already know that...
J.Jones- April 26, 2013 at 12:05 pm
God dammit, Pen, now I have to see if we have an extra shirt lying around here somewhere...
Pen Fifteen- April 26, 2013 at 12:03 pm
I heard Lloyd Irvin is now planning to promote Davis directly to brown belt in light of this evidence his clearly advanced "grappling" skill set.
crappiefloper- April 26, 2013 at 11:58 am
That's just good sexing right there. Give em juuuussssst enough o2 to survive...

Seriously, nothing bad could happen, she will thank you. Don't tell her first though, that's hotter
algiersheadkick504- April 26, 2013 at 11:45 am
Its all fine and dandy in the bed but as soon as the bitch can't get wat she wants it becomes abuse
google- April 26, 2013 at 11:42 am
Well, Did she shut the fuck up or not?

What kind of reporting is this?
Viva Hate- April 26, 2013 at 11:42 am
You're doing it wrong, everyone knows you always have a safe word dammit!

Accusations of violence during divorce proceedings? Say it ain't so. yawn.
Fried Taco- April 26, 2013 at 11:15 am
Please, I don't believe anything a bitch says during divorce proceedings. I've heard more than my share of lies to get what they want.
