    Phil Davis vs. Chad Griggs Set for UFC on Fox 4

    Post by Dist205 on Mon May 14, 2012 5:26 pm


    In an odd bit of matchmaking, the UFC announced today that Phil Davis will be welcoming Chad Griggs to the light heavyweight division late this summer at UFC on Fox 4.

    A highly touted prospect on the quick path to the championship, collegiate wrestling standout Phil Davis (9-1) had his momentum halted when he met former champ Rashad Evans at UFC on Fox 2 this past January. Davis was outclassed in that bout, but not so much so that it erased the memory of promotional wins over Alexander Gustafsson, Brian Stann, Tim Boetsch and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

    Chad Griggs (11-2) brought his mutton chops to the UFC for the first time at UFC 145 this past April. Griggs fought Travis Browne and was hurt by a knee and submitted in short order, demonstrating just how much a size disadvantage can hurt you in the competitive heavyweight division. The 33-year-old now heads south to light heavyweight for the first time in his career.

    UFC on Fox 4 is scheduled to take place on August 4 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The fight card will feature the promotional debut of Hector Lombard, who’ll be taking on Brian Stann in the night’s main event.

    yea he should beat griggs rather soundly.

    didnt griggs weigh in against travis at 253? this will be a ridiculous cut for him, which will hamper him in the fight. i think the only reason he switch divs. is he wanted an extra fight. the ufc now when they bring in new talent (since fox) dont cut guys right away anymore. they give u 2 or 3 fights before they cut u. and with sooo many fights some guys they just throw on the shelf after 2 or 3 loses.

    griggs knew if he lost 1 more at hw he was done. at lhw now, the shit starts over. they'll give him 2 fights there.
