Josh Grispi vs Diego Nunes WEC 37 fight likely Dec. 3

Josh "The Fluke" Grispi (9-1) will face off against Brazilian Diego Nunes (10-2) in a featherweight bout on the WEC 37 card at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 3, according to

"The Fluke" is currently riding a seven-fight win streak, including his most recent first round destruction of Micah Miller at WEC 35. In fact, each of his nine career wins have been ended in the first frame (five by (T)KO and four by submission).

The Boston area fighter is among the WEC's youngest and brightest up-and-coming stars. At only 19 years old he's already developed into a very dangerous mixed martial artist and he still has a world of potential in front of him.

This will be his third fight in the WEC cage. He previously defeated Mark Hominick with a first round rear naked choke at WEC 32 and Miller at WEC 35 by technical knockout.

Nunes is part of team Nogueira in Brazil. He trains day in and day out with some of the best mixed martial artists in the world. He's mainly competed on the smaller level events in Brazil, but appears ready for his first big stage fight in the WEC.

Like his opponent, he too has demonstrated the ability to end fights quickly. Of his 10 wins only one made it into the second round. And that was the first fight of his career ... more than four years ago.

This will be a high paced fight that more than likely won't see the final bell. Both guys will be looking to finish the other early which should make for an exciting scrap.

Miguel Torres will defend his bantamweight title against Manny Tapia on the card as well. That bout will more than likely be the event's headliner.

WEC 37 will air live on the Versus network beginning at 9 p.m. ET on December 3. Stay dialed in to for more news and information on WEC 37.
