 UFC Betting - Davis Looks To Continue Climb Up UFC Light Heavyweight Division Saturday
posted 6 years ago

The undefeated Phil Davis will look to continue his rise through the ranks in the UFC Light Heavyweight division when he takes on one of the top fighters to ever compete in the division in Antonio Rogerio Nogueira on Saturday night at UFC Fight Night. Nogueira had his latest run ended by a judge's decision, and will undoubtedly be looking to make sure that no one other than himself decides who wins this fight.

 

UFC Fight Night: Nogueira vs. Davis

(19-4-0) Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Phil Davis (8-0-0)

Saturday Match 26, 2011 – 9:00 PM ET

Key Arena, Seattle, Washington

Online Sports Betting Odds: Davis - 140

 

Davis took this bout after Tito Ortiz was forced to withdraw after suffering a serious cut to the head during training that would not be healed by this Saturday. However, as was the case with the UFC Light Heavyweight championship fight between Maurico “Shogun” Rua and Jon Jones, this may be a case where the replacement may actually mount a stronger challenge than the original fighter.

One of the most well recognized UFC betting names in the sport, Nogueira will battle to get back on track after a unanimous decision loss to Ryan Bader at UFC 119: Mir vs Cro Cop. Nogueira had won seven straight fights before falling to Bader, including his first two back in the UFC, and is eager to prove that he still belongs with the best in the promotion. A black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Nogueira has clinched nearly as many wins via submission (6) as he has via knockout (5), and it's that versatility that makes him a tough challenge. At 34-years old, Nogueira will be pushed by a talented up-and-comer with a similar style.

The undefeated 26-year old ranks among the rising sportsbook promo stars in the UFC Light Heavyweight division, and may one day be the man that steps in the octagon to take on Jones for the title belt. Davis has earned merit in the UFC with wins over Rodney Wallace and Tim Boetsch, and his technique and versatility have made him a promising prospect. A former NCAA division I wrestler and blue belt in Brazilian Jiu   Jitsu, Davis has clinched three of his eight career wins via submission and another two by knockout, but will need to prove his self all over again as he takes another step up in terms of competition.

While Nogueira still ranks among the best fighters in the division, the old wave has already begun to give way to a new generation of fighter, and the UFC Light Heavyweight division is no exception to that rule. Davis will eventually emerge as the likeliest contender to take down the new champion Jon Jones, a road that continues Saturday as he looks to extend his perfect pay per head record to nine straight wins.
