  • Written by Dave Walsh

Former runner-up on The Ultimate Fighter's eighth season and UFC fighter Phillipe Nover has been quiet of late. His UFC record of 0-3 made him think long and hard about where his career is going and what to do. Nover returned to nursing full time while training part time, and it looks like Nover has aspirations to return to the ring and fight, but not what you'd think. Instead of returning to MMA immediately, Nover is looking to fight in some Muay Thai fights in his home of New York first. MuayThaiAuthority.com has the story.

 

Nover began working his Muay Thai with Jason Straut at Church Street Boxing Gym and what better way to return to combat sports than by showcasing his skills on New York’s premier Muay Thai promotion, Friday Night Fights. Despite being known for his stand up skills in the MMA world Nover admits that he has only had one fight that was stand up only, and that was an underground fight in Brooklyn. Although he is only focusing on his stand up he admits it isn’t any easier. “The particulars you have to get use to” such as the different clinches, and sweeps which keep things interesting. Despite being focused on a Muay Thai fight Nover is still training his entire arsenal as he plans to make a run at the UFC again.
