It’s been a matter of time before we saw Raphael Davis signed to the upper echelon of mma. MMAjunkie.com learned from sources close to the light-heavyweight fighter and confirmed with company officials that Davis has signed a multi-fight deal.
Raphael Davis is the latest addition to sign with the World Series of Fighting. Davis is a well-rounded mma fighter and can do it all. He has 12 stoppage victories in his 13 career wins, including seven by submission, and another five wins by knockout since going pro in 2006.
He is best-known for his four-fight stint under the Bellator MMA banner, in which he compiled three wins with one loss. Since then he has competed twice outside of the promotion, earning a pair of second-round TKO wins in fights in California and Switzerland.
Davis is riding a three-fight win streak with all three victories coming by the way of second-round knockout. Davis joins a World Series of Fighting light heavyweight roster that includes Francisco France, Anthony Johnson, Mike Kyle, D.J. Linderman, Angel DeAnda, Tyrone Spong and Hans Stringer. Davis’ debut date for the promotion has not yet been determined.
