Joey Davis Worried More About Money Than Opponents

When it comes to his career as a professional MMA fighter, an undefeated Davis is more concerned with money than opponents.

“I’m absolutely not worrying about a human being,” Davis said after the event (via MMA Junkie). “I’m worrying about these checks. I need this money bad. I don’t worry about another person because, at the end of the day, I have the best skills on the planet, I feel. … If I pan out the way I’m supposed to, I’m dangerous. I will be successful. I’m here for the money.”

There is no word on how much Davis was paid for the Bellator 219 bout, as the promotion didn’t release the financial numbers associated with that event. Davis currently holds a 5-0-0 record as a professional MMA fighter and all of those bouts happened under the Bellator MMA banner. Davis, while fighting five times in Bellator MMA, has seen all five of those bouts happened on the events preliminary card.
