Tyson Griffin will make his Octagon featherweight debut at UFC Live 4. | Dave Mandel/Sherdog.com
The event, while not officially announced by the promotion, is expected to take place in Pittsburgh at the Consol Energy Center.
After winning six of seven fights in the UFC's lightweight division from 2007 to 2009, Griffin has lost three straight. Griffin first fell by split decision to prospect Evan Dunham at UFC 115 and followed that loss with a brutal, one-punch knockout defeat at the hands of Takanori Gomi 10 months later at UFC Live 2.
A lightweight finalist on “The Ultimate Fighter 5,” Gamburyan has found success since making the cut to featherweight in 2009. Following back-to-back defeats inside the Octagon to Robert Emerson and Thiago Tavares, “The Anvil” ran off three-straight wins in the WEC, besting John Franchi, Leonard Garcia and former champion Mike Thomas Brown, en route to a title shot against dominant champion Jose Aldo. Unfortunately for the judo specialist, his chance at the gold was obliterated by “Junior,” as the Brazilian earned a second-round knockout to retain his belt.view original article >>
