Nam Phan vs Leonard Garcia at TUF Finale....145 lbs

Looks like the "Bad Boy" isn't hurt, after all.

Leonard Garcia will take on Nam Phan at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale on Dec. 4 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to MMA Weekly.

Garcia was originally set to compete at the event against Tyler Toner but it was reported he suffered an injury and was eventually replaced by Ian Loveland.

Turns out, he's okay and he'll welcome Phan to the UFC's freshly minted featherweight division.

Phan lost in tonight's (Dec. 1) episode of The Ultimate Fighter to Michael Johnson and the promotion wasted no time in announcing his booking against Garcia. It was a tightly fought split decision and company President Dana White clearly thought highly of the contest.

Enough to immediately put Phan in against the always electrifying "Bad Boy."

The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale will feature a main event of Stephan Bonnar vs Igor Pokrajac, along with a middleweight showdown pitting Demian Maia against TUF season three winner Kendall Grove.

As we learned earlier tonight, Jonathen Brookins will square off with Michael Johnson to determine the winner of this year's season.

I'm rooting for Bad Boy but he can be a mixed bag. I'll hope for what I always hope for though: either an exciting fight or someone gets smashed good.

Nam is so much more technical than Garcia. I don't know which Garcia is gonna show up. I think there's a good chance Nam picks him apart.

Nam works the body beautifully I say a TKO that starts from a liver shot.

This fight should at the very least have a ton of action. Not the biggest fan of Garcia he does put on exciting fights but he resorts to throwing bombs with little technique too often for my tastes. I think Nam wins by decision as long as the judges don't give credit to Garcia for swinging and missing like they did in his fight vs. Massouh, but if Garcia connects it could easily be lights out for Nam should be exciting regardless

Those were vicious shots last night. If he threw a few more of those he might be in the Finale.
