Phil Davis and Vinny Magalhaes will settle their feud next month when they meet at UFC 159: Jones vs. Sonnen. Until then, the two light heavyweights will have to enjoy calling each other out through the media.
While in Canada for tonight’s card, Davis did an interview with SportsNet where he let it be known that he didn’t know much about his opponent until he hit the computer.
“I literally just googled the guy to see who he was,” Davis said. “He campaigned for the fight. He went out and actively campaigned for the fight on Twitter. If you want to fight so bad, we’ll make it happen.”
Davis has been out of action since a win over Wagner Prado last year, as he was scheduled to compete at the year-end event against Forrest Griffin before an injury canceled the bout.
Magalhaes, who returned to the UFC after several years away, offered up his response via Twitter earlier today.
. @philmrwonderful you’re wasting your time googling my name. You should start to google “best orthopedist in SD” instead.
