After his bout with Forrest Griffin fell through for UFC 155, Phil Davis tells me that fellow light heavyweight Vinny Magalhaes declined to take the fight on three weeks notice.
Magalhaes (10-5, 1 NC) has said repeatedly on Twitter and in various interviews that he wants a fight with Davis (10-1, 1 NC), the former NCAA wrestling champion.
Magalhaes on Friday posted to his Twitter account, "@PhilMrWonderful I heard you're not planning on fighting until April. That's fine. I don't mind waiting."
This was part of the online conversation that followed:
Davis: You don't mind waiting… but you mind stepping up. What a loser.
Magalhaes: so basically you don't want to give me a full camp, like you had, so your chances increase. Seems fair.
Davis: hahaha ur such a bum lol you can train for a year and still get beat
Magalaes: I train for 3 weeks I will beat you in 2 rounds. With a full camp, you'd fake an injury in the locker room.
Davis: hahaha your seriously delusional lol this made my day. So why didn't you step up if your so tough vinny???
Magalaes: I'm not that tough actually, exactly why I'm picking a fight with you.
Davis: your a bum! Get off my timeline
Davis: Ur wasting my time, u didn't want to fight on one of the biggest fight cards of the year co main, but I'm the one ducking you?
Magalaes: so does that mean that you'll stop ducking me and you will take the fight on February 23rd #ufc157?
Davis: now you're a liar and a bum. They offered you the fight and you ran like girl in a scary movie.
Magalhaes: I will take the fight on #ufc155. If we do at HW. Are you down?
Davis largely ignored the last response instead replying a few hours later, "I'm signing off for the night people… it's been real… at least on my end."
