Light heavyweight prospect Phil Davis, a former NCAA wrestling champion, will make his UFC debut on February 6 against former WEC champ Brian Stann at “UFC 109: Relentless” in Las Vegas, the UFC today announced.
Davis (4-0), a four-time All-American at Penn State who eared a 116-20 record, made his MMA debut last October with a unanimous decision victory and has since scored two first-round knockouts and an opening-round submission to improve to 4-0.
Stann (8-2) won the WEC title from Doug Marshall in March 2008, his sixth-straight win to begin his MMA career, but lost the belt to Steve Cantwell in his next bout, then was dealt his second-straight loss by Krzysztof Soszynski in his UFC debut in April. “All American” has since bounced back with decision wins over Steve Cantwell in September and Rodney Wallace in December.
UFC 109 is headlined by Randy Couture vs. Mark Coleman and also features Demian Maia vs. Dan Miller, Nate Marquardt vs. Chael Sonnen, Mike Swick vs. Paulo Thiago, and Matt Serra vs. Frank Trigg.
