Nam Phan vs. Jim Hettes Slated For UFC 141 in Vegas

It seems like the UFC likes to throw Nam Phan into matches where it is an absolute barn burner. Following his stint on The Ultimate Fighter he has gone 1-2 in the UFC, with decision losses to Leonard Garcia and Mike Brown. Both those fights were entertaining to say the least. He picked up a well deserved rematch victory over Garcia at UFC 136 back in October.

The UFC has now thrown him in the octagon against undefeated (9-0) Jim Hettes. Hettes will make his second appearance in the octagon, his first was a submission victory over another TUF alumn Alex Caceres. Believe it or not all 9 of Hettes victories have come by way of submission.

Here is the excerpt from

Featherweights Nam Phan and Jim Hettes have verbally agreed to fight at UFC 141 on December 30th. Phan is coming off win marked by a record-setting offensive display, while Hettes remains undefeated, finishing all opponents by submission.

The UFC 141 card is shaping together nicely, with the main event showcasing a heavyweight match-up between Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem.
