Chad Griggs‘ debut in the UFC didn’t go so well when he ran into Travis Browne last month in his first fight since coming over from Strikeforce. Griggs started out strong but only lasted half a round, suffering a submission loss midway through the opening frame.
If Phil Davis has anything to say about it, Griggs’ light heavyweight debut will result in a similar outcome.
UFC officials confirmed on Monday Griggs and Davis will meet at UFC on FOX 4. The card is set for August 4 from Los Angeles.
Prior to his loss against Browne “The Grave Digger” had been on a six-fight winning streak with his only other defeat coming in 2007 to Shane Ott. Likewise, Davis (9-1) will also be looking to bounce back from defeat, as former UFC light heavyweight champ Rashad Evans handed “Mr. Wonderful” his first professional loss earlier this year.
