Davis welcomes Prada this August
The Ultimate Fighting Championship confirmed the bout today.
Davis was originally set to face Chad Griggs at the event, but an injury forced the Strikeforce veteran out of the contest.
Instead, Davis now welcomes Prado to the UFC for the Brazilian’s debut. Prado enters the promotion after earning a vicious knockout win under the Max Fight banner last May.
The newcomer immediately is thrown into the division’s shark tank against contender Phil Davis, who looks for a victory after his last fight ended in a unanimous decision loss to Rashad Evans at “UFC on FOX 2.” The loss ended his perfect 9-0 run as a professional.
