LONDON – Alfie Davis says only opportunity stands between him and being considered the world’s best fighter, and he hopes to get more shine with a win at Bellator Europe 6.
Davis (12-3 MMA, 3-0 BMMA), who meets Alessandro Botti (15-10 MMA, 0-1 BMMA) in a 161-pound catchweight bout on Saturday’s card, which takes place at The SSE Arena, Wembley in London and streams on MMA Junkie, is looking to make a quick rise up the Bellator ranks.
In fact, Davis sees his championship timeline at less than two years, so long as Bellator recognizes what kind of talent it has on its hands.
“I think I win this fight and then maybe in Dublin (in February) I’m hoping to get a bigger name,” Davis told MMA Junkie at Bellator Europe 6 media day. “I think I’m the best in the world and it’s just a matter of proving it. It’s on Bellator. Once they realize I’m a main event fighter I’ll be pushed more and Saturday night I’m just going to have to prove that.”
Davis pointed to his creative and dynamic style as another reason fans and the Bellator brass should back him. His past two wins have come by decision, but Davis said he sees a finish this time around.
“If I knock the guy out, then great, it’s going to go viral,” Davis said. “If not, I’m going to finish this guy pretty early anyway.”
