Mike Brown at WEC 44

Mike Brown at WEC 44

Former WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown will look to bounce back from recent losses when he faces former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ competitor Nam Phan at UFC 133 in Philadelphia.

The bout was announced by the UFC on Wednesday.

Mike Brown (24-8) has been having a bit of a rough time since losing his WEC title to Jose Aldo in 2009.

Since that fight, Brown has gone 2-3 overall and suffered back-to-back losses in his most recent fights. The American Top Team fighter has been super active as well however over the last several months, so with some time off a rejuvenated Mike Brown will return in August to face Phan in Philadelphia.

Nam Phan (16-8) didn’t have the UFC debut he was hoping for because he lost a very controversial decision to Leonard Garcia last December. Phan was set to return in March in a rematch with Garcia, but a late training injury forced him out of the bout and back to the sidelines.

Now that he’s healthy, Phan will bounce back against Brown in Philadelphia as a part of the UFC 133 undercard in August.
