In an alternate dimension, Vinny Magalhaes and Phil Davis are preparing to fight tonight at UFC 155. In another alternate dimension, Phil Davis is actually fighting his original opponent Forrest Griffin at UFC 155, but for the sake of this article let’s pretend that it’s Vinny vs. Phil. Thank you, multiverse, you are so mind-bending anything can happen. Unfortunately, we are living in this current consciousness, the one where Phil Davis is fighting no one tonight at 155, and neither is Forrest or Vinny. We live in the worst possible dimension for this UFC 155 scenario, which sucks, but at least we have an increasingly interesting storyline developing between Vinny and Phil, which sounds like the title to a sitcom.
The story basically goes like this: Forrest gets injured, Phil wants a fight, Vinny wasn’t comfortable cutting down to 205 on such short notice, so he asks Phil to meet him at UFC 157 at the end of February. Phil has family plans, so he wants April, maybe. Both light heavyweights claim one is ducking the other, but what they don’t realize is when both fighters duck at the same time, they both end up right in front of each other squatting. So now here we are, with this video interview by LayzieTheSavage in which Vinny Magalhaes continues to call out Phil Davis and claims Phil knows Vinny can submit him whenever Vinny feels like it, so Phil is the one ducking the fight. We think. There are so many claims of ducking here I’m expecting someone to yell out ‘Goose!’ then tap me on the head and run away.
