In order to accomplish goals you have to be willing to call shots and make things happen. Rarely will anyone just give you what you want, sometimes you have to step up and grab the bull by the horns. That is exactly what UFC light heavyweight Vinny Magalhaes did when he called out top ranked contender Phil “Mr. Wonderful” Davis and got his wish granted for a fight with the former Penn State Nittany Lion at UFC 159 in New Jersey.

A finalist on TUF season 8, Magalhaes recently returned to the UFC with a submission win over Igor Pokrajac at UFC 152 after being released from the organization in 2009 following consecutive losses. Magalhaes is currently riding a six fight win-streak but Davis believes that the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace is not worthy of fighting him. Words have been exchanged between the two and things are certainly heating up.

We recently spoke with Magalhaes on BJPenn.com Radio about the matchup. We also got his thoughts on the main event of that card between light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones and close friend and training partner Chael Sonnen.

Vinny predicted Chael would sub Andy when they fought last. I think Chael would have done it too had he not thrown the spinning backfist.

The only way I see that happening is if some crazy how he manages to wrestlefuck jones for 5 rounds, which, as much as I would love to see that, I don't think it'll happen. Closing the distance on Jones and finding success whether striking or wrestling, is easier said than done. The only person who has any success really against Jones is Machida, and for a brief moment, Vitor Belfort. I'd love to see it happen, but don't think it will.

This is a Randy Couture prediction.

Pick the guy who has no chance to win.

If he loses, everyone forgets what you said. If he wins, you can point out that you were the only one who had faith in him.
