Dave Herman has sustained an injury and has been removed from his matchup with Mike Russow that was scheduled for the main card of UFC 136. In their place, the rematch between Nam Phan and Leonard Garcia has been moved up. UFC.com has the news:
With Dave Herman forced to withdraw from his UFC 136 bout against Mike Russow, the long-awaited rematch between featherweight standouts Leonard Garcia and Nam Phan has been bumped to the main card on October 8th in Houston, making this Pay-Per-View event one of the most stacked and action-packed of 2011.
The wording is vague in terms of whether Russow will face a replacement and still compete on the card, but it seems unlikely that they could get a credible heavyweight in to face him on 10 days notice. Garcia and Phan first met at the Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale last December, where Garcia squeaked out a highly controversial split-decision win. Dana White didn't agree with the decision and actually gave Phan his win bonus. Now the rematch will take place on PPV.
