Leonard Garcia and Nam Phan at UFC 136

Leonard Garcia firing at Nam Phan

UFC on FX 3 on June 8 still doesn’t have an announced location or venue, but the fight card is certainly filling up. The latest bout added is a featherweight contest between Leonard Garcia and Matt Grice, according to UFC officials.

Garcia (15-8-1) is just 1-2 since moving over to the UFC with the rest of the WEC roster and enters the fight with Grice off of back-to-back losses. He’s one of those fighters that the UFC finds difficult to drop the guillotine on, however, when cut-day comes.

Known for always putting on an exciting fight, Garcia still has his back against the wall and will be looking at Grice as an opportunity to put things back on the right track.

Grice (14-4) will be looking to bounce back from a loss as well. Despite winning four-straight at lightweight, Grice dropped down to featherweight in his last bout, losing via TKO to Ricardo Lamas last June.

The UFC flyweight tournament semifinal rematch between Ian McCall and Demetrious Johnson heads the UFC on FX 3 fight card.
