Phil Davis fighting Chad Griggs at UFC on FOX 4

One of the most-hyped prospects on the UFC’s roster is undoubtedly Phil Davis, a 9-1 competitor coming off his first career loss after racking up wins inside the Octagon over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, Brian Stann, and Alexander Gustafsson. Prior to a decision defeat to Rashad Evans this past January, “Mr. Wonderful” was on the cusp of challenging for the light heavyweight title. Now, in his next fight, Davis will face an opponent simply looking to fit in at 205 pounds.

According to the UFC, Davis will face Chad Griggs at UFC on FOX 4. The bout will mark the Griggs’ first in the division after a heavyweight run featuring success against Bobby Lashley and Valentijn Overeem.

Davis Ready to Show Off What He’s Learned After Suffering First Career Loss

Griggs holds an overall record of 11-2 with all eleven wins involving some form of finish. Comparably, Davis has only ended five of his foes’ nights inside the allotted time period with four decisions to his credit.

UFC on FOX 4 is headlined by Stann scrapping with former Bellator champion Hector Lombard with other bouts on the August 4 lineup including Lyoto Machida-Ryan Bader and Joe Lauzon-Terry Etim.
