An undisclosed injury has forced Chad Griggs out of his future bout at UFC on Fox 4 bout against Phil Davis. Filling the void left by Griggs absence is undefeated prospect Wagner Prado. Prado is a young and talented Brazilian out of the Nogueira training camp. Prado is making the jump to the UFC with an inaugural bout against a very tough wrestler in Davis.

Phil Davis is coming off of his first professional loss to Rashad Evans and is looking to get back on the winning track against the inexperienced new comer.

Prado is entering the UFC octagon for the first time and has gone on record to say that fighting in the UFC is a dream come true.

“My biggest dream is to be the UFC light heavyweight champion of the world and thank God I’m on the right track, but I’ll go up one step at a time. I’m working toward achieving my goal and one day I’ll be there,” said Prado in April.

The UFC on Fox 4 card is set to take place August 4 live on Fox from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
