A pair on NCAA champions are on a collision course for UFC 129 as Phil Davis and Matt Hamill have agreed to meet in Toronto as a part of the star studded show coming to Ontario on April 30.
The fight was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the match-up on Friday, with bout agreements issued for the April contest.
Matt Hamill (10-2) has proven to not only be one of the most inspirational fighters in the UFC, but also one of the top rising stars. From his start on “The Ultimate Fighter Season 3,” Hamill has always been a tough competitor, and recently he’s begun his climb up the light heavyweight ladder.
Hamill dispatched of former TUF coach Tito Ortiz in his last fight, and he’ll look to continue his five-fight win streak when he returns in April.
Opposing Hamill in April will be former NCAA wrestling champion Phil Davis (8-0), who will be making his return to action after a dominant performance at UFC 123 in Detroit.
The Penn State alum has looked very impressive throughout his four fights with the UFC, but his fight in April against Hamill will be by far his toughest.
The bout between Davis and Hamill is the latest fight confirmed for what is expected to be a stacked show for UFC 129 including the main event pitting Georges St-Pierre in a title fight against No. 1 contender Jake Shields.
