Phil Davis Steps in for Tito Ortiz at UFN 24
UFC's first trip to Washington has been overhauled due to Tito Ortiz's injury. Hence, Phil Davis will face Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC 24 instead.
UFC President, Dana White, posted on his Twitter yesterday that Tito Ortiz has been pulled out of the UFN 24’s main card due to injury. Hence, UFC’s first trip to Washington underwent an overhaul. Phil Davis will replace Tito Ortiz, and will face Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC Fight Night 24.
According to sources close to the promotion, Tito Ortiz acquired an accidental training-session headbutt that gave him 22 stitches. The MRI and CT scan indicated no serious damage, but the injury was severe enough for Tito Ortiz to withdraw from the bout. A timetable of his return is yet to be determined.
The UFN 24 will take place on March 26 at KeyArena in Seatlle, and will air live on Spike TV.View Article Source »
