Phan vs. Hettes Wiki Update Wiki

The sixth bout of UFC 141 and the first to air on the pay per view main card featured Nam Phan and Jimmy Hettes squaring off in the featherweight division.


Phan moved forward early but was taken down on the first attempt from Hettes. Phan escaped to his feet but still with Hettes all over him, and Hettes pulled the fight back down. Hettes tripped Phan and attacked with a one-arm guillotine, then unloaded with punches from the top with Phan in trouble early. Hettes continued to attack with big punches and Phan turned to his stomach looking for a way out of the assault. Hettes took the back and continued to attack with left hands. Phan popped to his feet but was still in the clinch until breaking free and landing some good shots. Hettes connected on a slick hip toss, into side control and then full mount. Hettes landed a solid left elbow and then exploded for an armbar. Hettes adjusted looking to get his legs positioned properly for the armbar but Phan had his arms tied up defending. Blood flowed from Phan's eye where the elbow landed, and to end the round Hettes unloaded with a few more punches.


Hettes quickly clinched to star the second round. Hettes landed a trip takedown after a brief struggle and landed more ground and pound. Phan went for a leg lock, easily defended by Hettes, who moved to full mount and attacked for a choke. Hettes lost position in the scramble and Phan stood over looking for a way to attack. Hettes scrambled up and after some back and forth sequences on top, Hettes landed another takedown and controlled the final minute of the round.


The third round opened with some boxing exchanges, but Phan couldn't get in close enough to land any significant strikes. Hettes landed a takedown a minute into the round and roughed up Phan against the fence, landing a nice knee as they stood and broke free from the clinch. Phan connected on a good punch to the head and then one to the body. Hettes with another takedown with two minutes remaining, and options for Phan quickly dwindling. Hettes tied on a deep looking arm-triangle choke, but Phan defended intelligently. Phan was still on his back taking a beating with some big elbows and punches thrown down.
