Herman-Russow off UFC 136, Garcia-Phan bout promoted to main card

Dave Herman has been forced out of his scheduled UFC 136 bout with Mike Russow due to an undisclosed injury.  With the loss of that match-up, the UFC today announced that the rematch between Leonard Garcia and Nam Phan has been promoted to the pay-per-view main card portion of the Oct. 8 event, set to take place in Houston.  Phan looks to avenge a controversial split decision loss he suffered to Garcia at the TUF 12 Finale.
