Former NCAA wrestling champion Phil Davis will welcome Chad Griggs to the UFC’s light heavyweight division at UFC on FOX 4. The bout was confirmed by UFC officials on Monday.
Griggs, who posted a six-fight win streak prior to falling to Travis Browne last month in his UFC debut, will be dropping down from the ranks of heavyweight. “The Grave Digger” is 11-2 in his career.
Davis (9-1) suffered his first defeat earlier this year to former UFC champion Rashad Evans. “Mr. Wonderful” will be looking to bounce back against Griggs in August.
The card is headlined by a bout between former Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard and Brian Stann. It will take place in Los Angeles on August 4.
