Forrest Griffin vs. Phil Davis Set for UFC 155 in December
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin will indeed be fighting on the UFC 155 card, but will battle Phil Davis as opposed to newly named The Ultimate Fighter coach and former opponent, Chael Sonnen.
Griffin last fought in July at UFC 148 where he scored a unanimous decision victory over Tito Ortiz. The win was Griffin’s third in his last four fights. Ortiz retired following the bout.
Davis is coming off a very impressive submission victory over Wagner Prado at UFC 153 just last weekend. Davis carries a stellar 10-1-1 record into the fight with Griffin and is widely considered one of the brightest prospects in the light heavyweight division.
UFC 155 is scheduled for December 29 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
