'I'm going to enjoy choking you to death:' Josh Grispi arrest update reveals unsettling text messages

As if the charges against Josh Grispi weren't unsettling as it is, a new arrest update reveals a dark, sadistic side to the former UFC featherweight.

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight Josh Grispi is in deep doo-doo.

"The Fluke" -- who was bounced from the promotion following four consecutive losses -- was arrested earlier this week on charges of domestic violence, after allegedly training his pitbull to maul his wife on command. That's on top of the drugs and weapons found at his residence (full report here).

And believe it or not, it gets worse.

A new update from Middleborough's "Wicked Local" has a transcription of text messages Grispi allegedly sent to his wife, obtained from court records, and they share what can only be described as a sick, sadistic level of physical and mental abuse.

"UR (expletive) dead and if u even try n bring my kids into it the worse it will b for u and if u try and make a seen (sic) I'll choke u unconscious and smash ur throat and if u get worse n run around after I'm goin to let Buddy have at u and I'll walk out of the room."

"Don't cure (sic) you whore, That's all u think abor (sic) ur a (expletive) scum bag piece of (expletive) who I'm goin enjoy choking to death."

"U better not b bluffing about cops cuz I don't joke ur dead when I see u... Literally. I don't care I'm going to beat u n throw u to buddy, Ur dead."


His wife, Kaitlyn, reportedly suffered a broken wrist and concussion from Grispi's alleged beating, in addition to trauma inflicted by the pitbull attack. Their children, ages one and three, were placed in custody of their grandparents (on Kaitlyn's side). The dog was turned over to animal control.

More updates to this sad and unfortunate story, as they become available.
