Nam Phan asked to replace Eddie Yagin, and it now appears he has. According to a report by MMA Opinion, Phan will face Dennis Siver in December at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz.
Yagin was forced from the bout following a training injury to his head. Reports have yet to surface fully on Yagin, but initial ones stated he had swelling around the brain.
Phan (18-10) posted on Twitter recently that he would be willing to replace Yagin, writing, “If1azn brother falls than another must take his spot. Who wants 2 c me fight Dennis Siver?”
Siver dropped down to featherweight earlier this year, defeating Diego Nunes. The bout is scheduled for the prelims on December 8 from Seattle.
