UFC Adds Mike Brown vs Nam Phan to UFC 133 Fight Card

Nam Phan 300x200 UFC Adds Mike Brown vs Nam Phan to UFC 133 Fight Card

The Ultimate Fighting Championship announced today that former WEC featherweight champ Mike Brown will take on TUF 12 semifinalist Nam Phan at UFC 133 in August.

Phan (16-8) was supposed to face Leonard Garcia at UFC fight Night 24 in March, in a rematch of their Ultimate fighter 12 finale bout. Their first fight ended in a controversial split-decision in favor of Garcia when most of the MMA world thought Phan had won unanimously. Phan was forced to withdraw from the fight due to a foot injury and Chan Sung Jung stepped in to face Gracia.

Brown (24-8) has had a tough time of things since defeating Urijah Faber for the second time at WEC 41 in 2009. In his six fights since that he has gone just 2-4, including his featherweight title loss to Jose Aldo. Presenting on a two fight losing streak (both in the UFC) Brown finds himself in a must-win situation. At 0-3 overall in the UFC (loss to Genki Sudo at UFC 47) he cannot afford to drop to 0-4 on the big stage.

UFC 133 takes place August 6th from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The night’s main card will air on pay-per-view starting at 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET. With the card still taking shape, here is how the card currently looks:

205 lbs.: Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis

205 lbs.: Antônio Rogério Nogueira vs. Rich Franklin

185 lbs.: Vitor Belfort vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama

170 lbs.: Dennis Hallman vs. Brian Ebersole

170 lbs.: Johny Hendricks vs. Mike Pierce

185 lbs.: Jorge Rivera vs. Alessio Sakara

185 lbs.: Rafael Natal vs. Riki Fukuda

145 lbs.: Nam Phan vs. Mike Brown

My brain child is MMAValor, something I had wanted to do for a long time and finally it’s here. Been an MMA fan since TUF season one (play catch up all the time) and the obsession started to grow like a weed and as the sport grows so does the love for the sport. I’m a jack of all trades, a very organized person that rides an emotional roller coaster daily.
