After going 133-0 and claiming four NCAA Division II wrestling titles, Compton, California’s Joey “Black Ice” Davis made the transition to professional mixed martial arts in August when he scored a unanimous decision win over Keith Cutrone at Bellator 160 in Anaheim. It was a dominating performance from the 22-year-old who showed impressive striking and footwork, especially for a wrestler. With MMA legend and Team Bodyshop coach Antonio McKee in his corner, Davis showed huge potential in his pro debut and is a welterweight that is surely going to make waves as he moves forward. Pro MMA Now correspondent Phantom Street Artist got the chance to sit down with “Black Ice” recently to get his thoughts on his performance and what it means to him to have such positive role models in his life like his coach, Antonio, as well as his father. Joey also discussed what he sees as his future in the sport and what his mindset is as he moves forward on this MMA journey. This is part 2.
