Leonard Garcia will return to action at Saturday’s The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale when he takes on TUF 12 semifinalist Nam Phan, who returns to 145-pounds after falling to Michael Johnson on Wednesday’s episode.
Garcia was rumored to be injured when he was recently pulled from a preliminary matchup with Tyler Toner, but was actually tapped to replace an injured Bruce Leeroy against Phan, according to MMAjunkie.
A pair of Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck matchups have also been added to the event, as semifinalist Kyle Watson faces Sako Chivitchian and Cody McKenzie meets Aaron Wilkinson on the unaired prelims.
The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale fight card is co-headlined by Stephan Bonnar vs. Igor Pokrajac and Demian Maia vs. Kendall Grove.
