PLAYERS: Nam PhanCole Miller
Most fighters are thrilled to speak with the media following a win, but UFC featherweight Nam Phan (Pictured) was absolutely ecstatic to see there was an Asian reporter (yours truly) waiting in line for a one-on-one with him after beating Cole Miller at “UFC on FOX 4.” Our off-camera conversation was pretty interesting, but we got some good stuff while the camera was rolling, as well. The Vietnamese-American broke down his split decision victory over Miller, the bond he’s established with the talented squad at Team Alpha Male, how being humbled by Jim Hettes rejuvenated his career and why he was silently hoping the FOX broadcast would be boring. Phan bumped his professional record to 18-10 following last night’s outing. UFC on FOX 4 took place inside Staples Center in Los Angeles.
