Featherweights Grispi, Grice Greenlit for UFC 136 in Houston


A featherweight fight between Josh Grispi and Matt Grice will go down at UFC 136, promotion officials announced Thursday.

Little is definitively known about the UFC 136 fight card. However, a middleweight scrap between Chael Sonnen and Brian Stann is expected to be part of the Oct. 8 event, which is expected to take place at Toyota Center in Houston.

Grispi, 22, enters his bout with Grice on the heels of the first back-to-back losses of his career.

After winning 10 straight bouts, which included a 4-0 stint in World Extreme Cagefighting, “The Fluke” has been pounded in both of his UFC contests. First, Grispi (Pictured) was battered by Dustin Poirier for three rounds at UFC 125 in January and then fell victim to a beautiful body shot from George Roop at “The Ultimate Fighter 13” Finale on June 4. Grispi holds notable wins over Mark Hominick, L.C. Davis and Jens Pulver.

Grice had a four-fight winning streak snapped by Ricardo Lamas on June 26, when the 29-year-old suffered a technical knockout at UFC Live 4.

A five-year veteran of the sport, Grice has posted just a 1-4 record inside the Octagon since his first appearance at UFC 70 in 2007. The Oklahoman has finished nine of his 13 career victims by either knockout or submission and has only seen the judges’ scorecards four times as a pro.
