Returning to the UFC for the first time since 2010, former Ultimate Fighter finalist Phillipe Nover will get the fight he's been waiting for, as the Filipino-American featherweight will be back in the Octagon in Manila on May 16 to take on "The Korean Bulldozer," Yui Chul Nam.
A highly-touted prospect out of New York, Nover fell short in three UFC bouts after tearing through the field on The Ultimate Fighter 8. Undeterred, Nover has gone 5-2 since, with three consecutive wins prompting his return to the UFC.
Making his debut at featherweight on May 16, the always exciting Nam is coming off a three-round Fight of the Night win over Kazuki Tokudome last March.
