WEC 49: Josh Grispi vs LC Davis booked for June 20 in Edmonton


Fast-rising featherweight prospect Josh Grispi will look to continue his ascension to the top of the rankings when he battles fellow up-and-comer L.C. Davis at the upcoming WEC 49 event scheduled for June 20 at the Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Grispi (13-1) hasn't seen the inside of the cage since making quick work of fading legend Jens Pulver at WEC 41: "Brown vs. Faber 2" last June. "The Fluke" is currently riding a nine-fight winning streak and is undefeated under the WEC banner.

He'll need to be at the top of his game to overcome the well-traveled wrestler, as Davis (16-2) is also perfect as a WEC fighter and has notable wins over Javier Vasquez, Diego Nunes and Bao Quach.

WEC 49 will be making its Canadian debut right on the heels of UFC 115 -- which will also go down in Canada (Vancouver) on June 12. A match-up between Ed Ratcliff and Canada's own Chris Horodecki is currently the only other fight scheduled for the card.
