Mr. Wonderful, Phil Davis returns to the Octagon vs. Wagner Prado at the upcoming UFC on Fox 4 event on Aug. 4 in Los Angeles, CA. Originally scheduled to be Davis vs. Chad Griggs, Griggs was forced to withdraw from the bout with an injury. The bout is set to take place on the prelim portion on Fuel TV.
The main event is set to be Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua vs. Brandon Vera as it will be seen on Fox.
Prado, a product of the Nogueira camp, brings an undefeated 7-0 record to the promotion with five of those victories taking place in the first round. This will be Prado’s first experience on a large platform as he joins the UFC.
Davis will be looking to bounce back from his first loss coming from former champ, Rashad Evans at UFC on Fox 2.
