After an unfortunate eye poke ended their UFC on Fox 4 matchup prematurely, the UFC is aiming for Phil Davis and Wagner Prado to meet again in Minneapolis, Minnesota. UFC President Dana White announced the move during the UFC on Fox 4 post-fight press conference. UFC on FX 5 will take place October 5.
The first fight ended early between the two fighters when Phil Davis put his hand up to create space and accidentally caught Prado below the eye. The eye had a cut and some swelling underneath it but it seemed like the fight would continue until a miscommunication between Prado and the doctor lead to the fight being called, with the Brazilian protesting vehemently. The two will now get their chance to show their skills two months from now.
UFC on FX 5 takes place October 5 at the Target Center in Minneapolis. The card will be headlined by a heavyweight clash between Travis Browne and Antonio Silva. The card will also mark the UFC debut of flyweight submission master Jussier da Silva as he takes on Jon Dodson.
