Nam Phan will take on undefeated Jim Hettes in Las Vegas on December 30th. The bout will be the first main card fight shown on pay per view.
Hettes defeated Alex Caceres via submission in his UFC debut, marking his ninth submission in as many fights. It will be a tough task to submit Nam Phan who is a black belt in jiu jitsu. Phan, who will be fighting for the third time in five months, will likely try to keep the fight on its feet where he can use his superior boxing skills.
UFC 141 is of course headlined by the behemoth match up between Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem.
Also on the preliminary card is Dong Hyun Kim vs. Sean Pierson
Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem Donald Cerrone vs. Nate Diaz Jon Fitch vs. Johny Hendricks Alexander Gustafsson vs. Vladimir Matyushenko Jim Hettes vs. Nam Phan
