Former TUF Finalist Nover Returns for Manila Bout

 

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.
