UFC 136: Josh Grispi vs Matt Grice possible for Oct. 8 in Houston, Texas


A pair of 145-pounders are set to square off in "Space City" when former title hopeful Josh Grispi takes on fellow struggling featherweight Matt Grice on Oct. 8 in Houston, Texas at UFC 136.

The promotion brought word of the pending contest earlier today.

Grispi makes his way south fighting not only to regain the considerable hype he once had but likely for his very spot on the UFC roster. "The Fluke" has been just that over his last two fights, decisively losing both to Dustin Poirier and George Roop, respectively.

Grice, meanwhile, has found nothing but struggles inside the Octagon. His first stint with the promotion, from April 2007 to July 2009, resulted in a 1-3 record and a quick exit back to the regional scene. After four straight wins he was given another chance and made his featherweight debut at UFC on Versus 4, promptly losing by technical knockout in the first round.

UFC 136 is currently set to go down on Oct. 8 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. Many fights have been rumored for the card, including Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard 3 and Jose Aldo vs. Kenny Florian, but nothing is confirmed at this time.

So far, only a middleweight mash up pitting Chael Sonnen vs. Brian Stann, the co-main event of the evening, has been set for the event.

Stay tuned to for more on this still-developing fight card.
