The featherweight scrap between Nam Phan and Jim Hettes was officially announced for “UFC 140: Lesnar vs. Overeem” weeks ago. However, it wasn’t until Thursday that the organization confirmed the 145-pound affair would mark the fifth and final bout to appear in the pay-per-view broadcast.

Spike TV will play their final chip with the UFC and air a pair of preliminary bouts live at 9PM ET/6PM PT. Although no official announcement has been made, the UFC’s Facebook page is expected to provide a live stream of the card’s remaining prelims.

The PPV broadcast begins at its new/old 10PM ET/7PM PT start time.
