Nam Phan and Leonard Garcia will finally have their much-awaited rematch at next month's UFC 136 event.

Nam Phan is now slated to face his fellow featherweight, Leonard Garcia, in a rematch following the controversial TUF 12 Finale fight. Phan was supposed to face Matt Grice at the upcoming event, replacing the injured Josh Grispi. However, Grice was forced to withdraw from the card due to an injury.

UFC officials announced that verbal agreements have been set for the rematch. UFC 136 is scheduled on October 8 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The main card, which will be aired on pay-per-view, is highlighted by the lightweight championship bout between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard. There are also two fights booked for Spike TV’s “UFC Prelims” special, and five bouts to be aired on Facebook.
