UFC 159 Preview: Phil Davis vs. Vinny Magalhaes Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Most of the attention for UFC 159 has been focused on the evening's main event, but the card's main source of trash talk has been between Phil Davis and Vinny Magalhaes.

The two light heavyweights are set to square off after months of Magalhaes calling out the former Penn State wrestling champion. It is now time to put up or shut up for the Brazilian.

The easy pick going into this is Davis as he's a Top-10 light heavyweight, while Magalhaes is a relative unknown to the UFC crowd. Indeed the main image of Magalhaes burned into the memory of fans is that of him getting dropped by Ryan Bader in The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale.

However, regardless of how much of a favorite Davis is heading into this contest, don't be shocked if Magalhaes pulls off a submission victory.
