A light heavyweight matchup between top prospect Phil Davis and promotional newcomer Wagner Prado is now official for UFC on FOX 4.

Davis was originally expected to face Chad Griggs on the card, but "The Grave Digger" was forced to withdraw due to injury. MMAjunkie.com in May reported the switch, and UFC officials recently confirmed the new matchup.

Featuring a main event between Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Brandon Vera, UFC on FOX 4 takes place Aug. 4 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

This seems really silly.

From an article in April, before the Davis fight was announced:

“I have evolved a lot in a short period of time, and have been winning along the way, but I know that I still have much more to learn and I am working hard for that,” said Prado. “Currently, besides my boxing, Muay Thai and jiu-jitsu practices I have been doing wrestling, which I didn’t do, and strength and conditioning, which is also new to me. I have had great results so the tendency is to improve!”

Hope he has greatly improved.

Fight Matrix has this as the #14 LHW fighter in the world versus the #208 LHW fighter in the world.

What is this, the first round of Wimbledon?

Definitely just handing Davis a win. Out of Prado's 8 wins just 1 opponent has a record above .500

Makes me wish he was still fighting Mutton Chops.

Nadal did just lose to the #100 ranked player. With that said, Davis isn't losing this

To be fair the accuracy of these rankings are already inaccurate if they have Davis ranked outside the top 10. He is deff a top 10 LHW, wins over Lil Nog, Gustuffson, Stann & Boestch pretty much support him being top 10

Dangerous for Phil...he has everything to lose and only a potential highlight reel clip to gain
