Vinny Magalhaes: “I’m not worried about Phil Davis, it’s just talk”

Brazilian light heavyweight Vinny Magalhaes has a bout with Phil Davis scheduled for UFC 159: Jones Vs Sonnen. Magalhaes was asked in an interview who he would like to fight and he mentioned Davis’ name, but he insists it wasn’t a call out and just someone he thought was on the same skill level as him. That’s not how Davis took the comments, but Magalhaes can’t control that and is focused completely on the task in front of him in the octagon on April 27 in New Jersey.
