It was announced last month that undefeated light heavyweight prospect Phil Davis would face Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC Fight Night 24 on Saturday, March 26. Davis is replacing former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz, who was forced to pull out of the bout due to injury.
Davis was originally scheduled to face Matt Hamill at UFC 129, but Hamill was called up to replace Thiago Silva against Quinton “Rampage” Jackson at UFC 130 in May. Davis was then expected to face Jason Brilz at UFC 129 in Hamill’s place.
Check out the video below of Davis preparing for “Lil Nog.” UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis is scheduled to take place on March 26th at the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.
