UFC has announced the latest bout for the TUF China Finale in Macau on March 1, 2014. Nam Phan and Vaughan Lee will square off at bantamweight.
Nam Phan is a former TUF contestant who is now 2-5 in the UFC. While he started out competing in the featherweight division, he dropped to bantamweight to find success, but Takeya Mizugaki trumped his first outing. Phan gets another shot and this time in the Asia arena as he takes on another well-known fighter who’s established himself in the UFC via Asia appearances, Vaughan Lee.
Vaughan Lee, also at 2-5 in the UFC, appeared on the historic UFC 144 card where he astoundingly defeated KID Yamamoto. Since, he went on to also defeat Japanese Motonobu Tezuka on his own UK soil.
