Phil Davis says leaving the UFC was like breaking up with a girl.

A month away from his Bellator debut, Phil Davis has opened up about his split with the UFC.

Davis described it like “breaking up with a girlfriend” while speaking at a media day in Los Angeles.

“I enjoyed changing all of my headings and all my profiles and pictures and such. Some of it is like, ‘Man, I really liked that photo.’ It’s weird. It’s like breaking up with a girlfriend. That was fun while it lasted,” Davis said.

Davis will compete in the four-man Light Heavyweight tournament at Bellator 142: DYNAMITE, a joint show with Glory Kickboxing on September 19.

He will compete against Muhammed Lawal, Emanuel Newton and Linton Vassell – Davis is a red-hot favourite to win the tournament.

He feels that the move to Bellator, despite being a previous contender for the Light Heavyweight title in the UFC has refreshed his career.

“I’ll tell you this: life is good,” Davis said. “I am a happy dude. I feel like I re-found my — not that I ever didn’t love training and competing and fighting — but it’s like revised eagerness just to do the same thing every single day.”

Davis’ lost his last fight in January to Ryan Bader by split decision at UFC on Fox: Gustafsson vs. Johnson.
