UFC Nam Phan TUF 12

According to MMAWeekly, a featherweight rematch between Nam Phan and Leonard Garcia will go down at “UFC Fight Night 24” on March 26th.

Garcia took a highly controversial split decision victory over the Vietnamese-American at “The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale” in December. Although Garcia admitted defeat during his post-fight interview, the “Bad Boy” changed his tune after replaying the epic bout on his DVR.

UFC president Dana White thought the decision was so dubious, he awarded Phan his win bonus despite having his record slip to 16-8.

The freebie Spike TV broadcast features a light heavyweight bout between MMA icons Tito Ortiz and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira.

Here are the athletes expected/rumored to participate inside the Key Arena in Seattle, Washington:

Jon Madsen vs. Mike Russow
Aaron Simpson vs. Mario Miranda
Alex “Bruce Leroy” Caceres vs. Mackens Semerzier
John Hathaway vs. Kris McCray
Sean McCorkle vs. Christian Morecraft
Nam Phan vs. Leonard Garcia
Amir Sadollah vs. Duane “Bang” Ludwig
Dan Hardy vs. Anthony Johnson
Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
