Two former contestants on The Ultimate Fighter almost met as Vinny Magalhães (10-5-1 NC) was looking to take on Matt Hamill (11-4) though the fight never happened. Magalhães has since shifted his focus and is no longer interested in the two meeting.
“At this point, I don’t even care about Matt Hamill anymore,” said Magalhães to Fight Hub TV. “He said he had a deal that his girlfriend was pregnant and couldn’t take the fight until April or May. I understand family stuff. For me, I want to take the fight if my wife’s pregnant so I can have money to provide for my family, but I understand.”
With Hamill out of the picture, Magalhães looks towards a fight with Phil Davis (10-1-1 NC). For over a month now, the two have been trading jabs over Twitter. Magalhães believes that Davis is ducking him. Davis said that he has prior family commitments and the meeting would have to wait until later in the year.
Both are coming out of wins during the fall months with their next fight unknown.
