Dave Herman Out of UFC 136, Phan vs. Garcia Bumped to the Main Card

September 28, 2011

Nam Phan and Leonard Garcia

An injury has forced Dave Herman off of UFC 136, so now the rematch between Nam Phan and Leonard Garcia will get the bump to the main card in Houston.

UFC officials announced the switch on Wednesday.

While no details were available at the time, Dave Herman suffered an injury in training that put him out of his fight against Mike Russow on next weekend’s UFC 136 card.

The UFC has yet to say if they will find a replacement to face Russow or not.

In their place, the rematch between Nam Phan and Leonard Garcia gets the slot on the main card of a stacked show in Houston.

Phan and Garcia battled once before with Garcia coming away with a decision victory in a hotly contested fight. Many didn’t agree with the decision so now Phan and Garcia will do it all over again.

UFC 136 takes place next weekend at the Toyota Center in Houston, Tex.
