What up, fight fans. Over the weekend at UFC 136 in Houston, Nam Phan faced off in a rematch against Leonard Garcia. And this time, Pham took home the win, 29-28: Phan wins thrilling UFC 136 decision over Garcia.

Phan got the edge early, teeing off on Garcia then knocking him down. Phan quickly moved into Garcia's guard, but after the referee didn't see enough action, he stood them up. Phan wobbled Garcia, and then defended one of his takedowns. Phan used body shots to create damage, and kept Garcia on his heels. In the final seconds of the round, Phan had one more onslaught to knock Garcia down again.

Garcia became more wild in the second round, winging big strikes that didn't go anywhere near Phan's face. Phan used short, fast punches to Garcia's face and body throughout the round. As the round wore on, Garcia began to tire, and a cut opened underneath his eye.

Between rounds, Phan said, "Let's touch gloves," to Garcia, who laughed and called Phan a word not fit for Cagewriter.
It was reportedly a solid fight, with neither fighter letting up for a moment all the way until the final horn. Now, after two memorable fights between them, there's already been talk of third to settle it once and for all. But if it was up Pham, he says he'd put the rival to rest: Nam Phan open to, but not interested in, third fight with Leonard Garcia.
