UFC Confirms Phil Davis vs. Wagner Prado Set For UFC 153
By FCF Staff
After their initial meeting resulted in a disappointing No Contest decision earlier this month, the UFC has confirmed that Phil Davis and Wagner Prado will fight again on October 13th in Rio de Janeiro. The promotion has announced the final line-up for the UFC 153 event, which will be hosted by the city’s HSBC Arena.
Doctors would not let Prado continue at UFC on FOX 4 on August 4th, after Davis accidently poked him in the eye early into the bout.
Prior to the fight Prado had won all eight of his fights, while Davis (9-1) was coming off a unanimous decision loss to former light-heavyweight-champ Rashad Evans.
Here is the complete line-up for UFC 153, which will feature a featherweight bout between champion Jose Aldo and Erik Koch in the main event.
