Review: 2014-11-15, pretty good finish but it is not enough to get three stars: Mike Richman vs Nam Phan gets two. Mike Richman entered this fight with a record of 17-5-0 (88% finishing rate) and he is ranked as the No.22 bantamweight in the world while his opponent, the black belt in Bjj, judo and karate Nam Phan, has an official record of 20-13-0 (70% finishing rate). Both fighters have lost and came back to win in 2014: Richman was beat by Goiti Yamauchi but then he defeated Ed West (=Richman vs West), Phan lost to Vaughan Lee and then won over Kenichi Ito and Yuki Baba. Richman vs Phan is on the undercard of Tito Ortiz vs Stephan Bonnar – Bellator 131. Watch the video and rate this fight!
Review: 2011-12-30, very nice first round then the pace slows down but the fight between Nam Phan and Jim Hettes was, for us, the best fight of UFC 141 (fight ended by unanimous decision). Nam Phan (17-9-0) entered as the No.58 featherweight in the world while Jim Hettes (9-0-0) entered as the No.65. Phan vs Hettes is on the undercard of Brock Lesnar vs Alistair Overeem, UFC 141.

Review: 2011-10-08, nice fight, especially in the third round when Leonard Garcia, after losing the second, comes back and tries to win the fight with all his energy but Nam Phan, thanks to an impressive performance, wins the bout taking revenge on Garcia (since in their first fight he had lost). Garcia vs Phan 2 was awarded as the “Fight of the Night” of the UFC 136 Edgar vs Maynard 3. Watch the video!
