From fighting for a title-shot to fighting for continued employment, featherweight Josh Grispi has had a rough go of it since coming over to the UFC after an impressive run under WEC’s banner. Nicknamed “The Fluke”, Grispi will attempt to avoid living up to the tag where his previous success is concerned this February 16 when he faces Andy Ogle at UFC on Fuel 7 in London, England.
Fighters Only Magazine was first to report the fight.
Grispi has dropped three straight scraps, making his outing against Ogle a “must win” bout. Prior to his slide the 14-4 Grispi had won ten fights in a row including finishes of L.C. Davis, Jens Pulver, and Mark Hominick.
The 8-2 Ogle made a name for himself on TUF 15, turning in an entertaining effort against Akira Corassani in his UFC debut this past September despite ultimately losing a Split Decision. Five of his wins have involved some form of finish.
