Phil Davis Receives New Opponent For August In Rising-Prospect Wagner Prado

Phil Davis was scheduled to welcome Chad Griggs to the UFC’s light heavyweight division.

Instead, “Mr. Wonderful” will now be meeting UFC newcomer Wagner Prado, as Griggs was forced out with an injury.

AMR Group, who represents Prado, confirmed the change with MMA Weekly’s Damon Martin. They said bout agreements are in place for the August 4 UFC on FOX 4 card.

Prado (7-0) is a member of Team Nogueira out of Brazil. He has been featured as one of the top 205-pound prospects in the world.

Davis will be making his return to action following a loss to Rashad Evans earlier this year.
