REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – In a homecoming of sorts, Filipino American fighting nurse Phillipe Nover will be back in the octagon at the Ultimate Fighting Championship after five years of absence.
According to the UFC website, on May 16 the “Filipino Assassin” will be taking on the “Korean Bulldozer” Yui-chul Nam at the UFC Manila Fight Night at the Mall of Asia Arena.
Nover had a disappointing first run in The Ultimate Fighter 8 in 2010.
But today he is set to return to the UFC after a series of wins in the Ring of Combat and Bellator.
He also had a successful social media campaign using #bringbacknover that helped him in his UFC comeback.
