The UFC 136 fight card has undergone a facelift now that "Pee-Wee's" big adventure will no longer put him deep in the heart of Texas.
That's because a last-minute injury to Dave Herman has shelved his heavyweight hoedown against Mike Russow, leaving a temporary gap on the pay-per-view main card scheduled for the Toyota Center on Oct. 8.
Filling the void will be Leonard Garcia, who will finally make good on his promise to give Nam Phan a rematch almost a full year after their initial meeting, and now they get to do it in front of a much wider audience after being promoted from the "Edgar vs. Maynard 3" preliminary card.
These two were originally scheduled to rematch at UFC Fight Night 24 before Phan suffered an injury. That allowed Chan Sung Jung to step in and get his revenge against "Bad Boy," who served up one of his "Garcia Splits" to the "Korean Zombie" in April of last year.
He did the same to Phan back in Dec. 2010, winning a controversial decision victory after three hard rounds of action. In fact, company President Dana White agreed with fans that Phan was robbed and paid him his win bonus to go along with his show money.
Now he'll give him the chance to get in the cage and do something he couldn't do the first time -- finish the job.
When Phan climbs inside the cage at the Toyota Center in Houston he won't just be fighting for revenge, he may very well be fighting for his spot on the ZUFFA roster.
That's because the former Ultimate Fighter contestant has lost both of his Octagon contests since getting out of the house late last year and has lost four of five overall.
This one is important -- time to make something happen.
