The fight is not set. That article is very misleading in the way they edited the conversation. It actually went more like this.

Dana: He wants to fight on that 20th anniversary card. He wants to co-main that (card )
Female reporter: Chael called out Phil Davis.
Dana: Huh?
F.r.: We heard that chael called out Phil Davis.
Dana: Chael called out Phil Davis? ...huh? ...Yeah?...interesting......that fight could happen

the fact that Glover isn't being pushed to the top shows exactly the fault the UFC has fallen into. The whole division is a huge frikin mess and one of the most (potentially) talented people is being held back arbitrarily. I don't even care about Sonnen really because we know his ceiling, how about giving the guy who has been annihilating everyone a shot.

Dana has said that Glover will get a title shot with a win over Bader.

Well damn the LHW division simply stinks for it to be that easy to get a shot.

I don't want to see this fight at ALL! For some reason, as nice as Davis is as a person, I've never really liked him as a fighter. Also, Sonnen should go back to MW, instead of staying at LW in my opinion.

I hate Sonnen vs Davis (Only because of Davis), no way does he deserve to be the co-main on the freaking 20th anniversary card!

Plus you factor in that GSP will likely win a 5 round fight from top-control and jab control

and

Rory will likely will a 3 round decision from jab control, maybe beat lawler up (not betting on a finish)

so with Davis, Chael would be forced to wrestle-f@ck him, or play the clinch game for 3 rounds with dirty boxing.

thats 11 straight rounds of 0% chance of a finish...no thanks,

thankfully the twitter-birds have caused enough buzz to have chael call out Rashad Evans. Evans is way more historic and meaningful giving this is the 20th Anniversary show!

I agree that LHW is all over the place. Hendo getting injured and then losing, Machida turning down the bones fight earlier this year, Middleweights moving up for title shots...
