Nam Phan vs. Leonard Garcia at TUF 12 Finale in Las Vegas, Nevada

TUF 12 semi-finalist, Nam Phan and former WEC title contender, Leonard Garcia will throw down in a featherweight bout this weekend on the season finale of the Ultimate Fighter season 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Phan competed for Strikeforce and Sengoku in the past, moved up to lightweight for the reality show and defeated Mike Budnik via TKO to earn his spot in the house. He followed that up with a decision win over Spencer Paige and a TKO win over Cody McKenzie to become the only Team Koscheck fighter in the semi-finals. He lost one of the most important fights in the house to Michael Johnson to end his run on the show.

Garcia had been originally set to face fellow WEC fighter, Tyler Toner on the undercard of the show but it appears he was pulled from that fight in favor of this fight instead. He was last seen in action at WEC 51, losing via split-decision to Mark Hominick.
