Former WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown will look to bounce back from recent losses when he faces former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ competitor Nam Phan at UFC 133 in Philadelphia.
The bout was announced by the UFC on Wednesday.
Mike Brown (24-8) has been having a bit of a rough time since losing his WEC title to Jose Aldo in 2009.
Since that fight, Brown has gone 2-3 overall and suffered back-to-back losses in his most recent fights. The American Top Team fighter has been super active as well however over the last several months, so with some time off a rejuvenated Mike Brown will return in August to face Phan in Philadelphia.
Nam Phan (16-8) didn’t have the UFC debut he was hoping for because he lost a very controversial decision to Leonard Garcia last December. Phan was set to return in March in a rematch with Garcia, but a late training injury forced him out of the bout and back to the sidelines.
Now that he’s healthy, Phan will bounce back against Brown in Philadelphia as a part of the UFC 133 undercard in August.
I think he's really underestimated. He beat garcia I'm every way someone could. I think he won the fight in the show too. He just has shit luck with judges. He's probably got some of the best body spots I'm mma.
I think its great the UFC have offered Nam a lovely fight. Its as if he won his last two and is getting rewarded with a proper career enhancing matchup. Sure, its tough for Nam. But if he wins? wow. That'll propel him right into the mix.
