Castillo-Sass, Mills-Riddle, Grispi-Ogle, 3 More Fights Added to UFC on Fuel TV 7 Bill

Six new fights have been added to the developing UFC on Fuel TV 7 card.

Promotion officials announced Thursday that Danny Castillo will face Paul Sass at the Feb. 16 event, while Che Mills, Josh Grispi, Terry Etim, Vaughan Lee and Ulysses Gomez square off with Matt Riddle, Andy Ogle, Renee Forte, Motonobu Tezuka and Phil Harris, respectively.

UFC on Fuel TV 7 takes place at Wembley Arena in London and is headlined by an interim bantamweight title conflict between Renan Barao and Michael McDonald. The evening’s main draw airs live on Fox-owned cable network Fuel TV, while the preliminary card is streamed live immediately prior on Facebook.

Castillo, 33, recently saw a three-fight winning streak smashed by “Ultimate Fighter 12” finalist Michael Johnson, who brutally knocked out Castillo on Oct. 5 at UFC on FX 5. Sass, meanwhile, suffered the first loss of his career on Sept. 29, when he was submitted by Matt Wiman at UFC on Fuel TV 5.

A nine-year pro, Mills has won six of his last seven. Like his countryman Sass, the 30-year-old Englishman was last seen competing on home soil at UFC on Fuel TV 5, earning a first-round technical knockout over Duane Ludwig. Riddle, 26, has not lost since September 2011, most recently earning a victory over another Brit in John Maguire at UFC 154 on Nov. 17.

Once considered the top contender for Jose Aldo’s featherweight title, Grispi now hopes to halt a three-fight skid. “The Fluke” last competed on Aug. 4, submitting to a Rani Yahya north-south choke at UFC on Fox 4. In Ogle, Grispi faces a 23-year-old prospect looking to erase the memory of an unsuccessful Octagon debut against “TUF 14” cast mate Akira Corassani at UFC on Fuel TV 5.

Etim, 27, has lost two of three after posting four straight wins. The 27-year-old was most recently knocked stiff by an Edson Barboza spinning heel kick this past January at UFC 142. Forte now makes his sophomore Octagon effort as a lightweight after falling to “TUF: Brazil” cast mate Sergio Moraes in a welterweight duel at UFC 153.

Lee, 30, has gone 1-2 since joining the UFC just over one year ago and was last seen submitting to a T.J. Dillashaw neck crank this past July at UFC on Fuel TV 4. A veteran of Deep and Pancrase competition, Tezuka enters the cage coming off a split-decision defeat to Alex Caceres at UFC on Fuel TV 6 on Nov. 10.

A former two-division Tachi Palace Fights champion, Gomez was upset in his Octagon foray at UFC on Fox 4, falling by knockout to fellow debutant John Moraga. Like “Useless,” Harris was also bested in his UFC debut, submitting to a Darren Uyenoyama rear-naked choke on Oct. 5 at UFC on FX 5.
