Trio of featherweight tilts added to UFC on FOX 4 lineup

The card for UFC on FOX 4 is nearing completion with the recent addition of three more match-ups. Joining headliners Brian Stann-Hector Lombard at the August 4 event are featherweight fights between Nam Phan-Cole Miller, Josh Grispi-Pablo Garza, and Manny Gamburyan-Michihiro Omigawa.

All of the bouts have been confirmed by UFC officials. Interestingly enough, all six men are coming off losses making success at the show even more important than it might normally be.

Phan holds an overall record of 17-10 and is perhaps best known for his pair of entertaining efforts against Leonard Garcia, while Miller (18-6) is a fellow Ultimate Fighter alumnus with fifteen finishes in his eighteen total wins.

The 14-3 Grispi has been out of action since June 2011 to deal with family issues and was considered to be a top divisional contender until suffering back-to-back losses in his last two outings. Comparably, Garza (11-3) has also dropped two in a row after notching consecutive bonus-winning victories.

A TUF finalist, Gamburyan (11-7) has come up short in his last three scraps including decisions to Tyson Griffin and most recently Diego Nunes. Meanwhile, Omigawa (13-11-1) built a reputation for himself in Japan as a tough draw for any adversary and even owns wins over top 145ers Marlon Sando and Hatsu Hioki.

    I like Miller and Phan, but I really hope Nam can pull of the win here. He’s gonna get cut if not and I think he’s a tough fight for any 145 out there.
