Featherweights Grispi, Grice Greenlit for UFC 136 in Houston
A featherweight fight between Josh Grispi
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
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.
