Phil Davis Vs. Chad Griggs Placed On UFC On FOX 4 Card

Phil Davis will look to rebound from his first career loss in August when he takes on Chad Griggs.

The UFC announced the bout Monday for the August 4 UFC on FOX 4 card. The event will take place in Los Angeles, with Hector Lombard vs. Brian Stann set as the main event.

Davis (9-1) lost earlier this year to Rashad Evans, halting his five-fight UFC win streak.

“Mr. Wonderful” is a former wrestling standout at Penn State University, securing All-American status for each year he was there. Davis also won the 2008 197-pound NCAA title.

Griggs (11-2) lost his UFC debut to Travis Browne after coming over from Strikeforce. This will be his first fight at light heavyweight since joining the UFC as a heavyweight fighter.

Griggs, also known as “The Grave Digger,” had his six-fight win streak snapped by Browne. His last loss prior was to Shane Ott in 2007.
