It was announced last month that undefeated light heavyweight prospect Phil Davis would face Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC Fight Night 24 this 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.
Davis has released his first two video blogs leading up to Saturday’s event. You can check them out at the end of this article.
