Forrest Griffin at the UFC 148 Press ConferenceChael Sonnen left a UFC 155 fight with Forrest Griffin behind earlier this week to accept a coaching stint opposite UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones on The Ultimate Fighter Season 17 with the two then squaring off in the Octagon in April 2013.

Three days later and Griffin already has a new opponent and remains on the UFC 155 fight card slated for Dec. 29 in Las Vegas.

Forrest Griffin will face Phil Davis at UFC 155, according to the UFC, declaring that verbal agreements are in place for the bout.

Griffin took Sonnen’s move in stride, telling UFC Tonight’s Ariel Helwani, “Why fight your way to the top when you can talk your way to the top?”

Griffin (19-7) most recently sent Tito Ortiz off into retirement with a unanimous decision victory over in the UFC 148 Fight of the Night.

Davis (10-1) is less than a week removed from his most recent bout. After he and Wagner Prado stalemated at UFC on Fox 4 due to an accidental eye poke, Davis put on a masterful performance in their rematch at UFC 153 on Saturday night in Brazil.

Davis dominated Prado, eventually submitting him via an Anaconda choke late in the second round.

Griffin vs. Davis will be part of the main card, supporting cast for the headlining UFC 155 heavyweight championship bout between Junior dos Santos and Cain Velasquez.
