Jose Aldo vs. Josh Grispi @ UFC 125


Today sources close to the bout have confirmed to that Jose Aldo will defend his UFC featherweight title against Josh Grispi. The bout is rumored to serve as the co-main event for UFC 125 in Las Vegas, NV on January 1st. Bout agreements have been delivered and are expected to be returned shortly.

The UFC had announced yesterday that Aldo would indeed defend his title on this card and most had assumed Mark Hominick would be the opponent. With an injury to Hominick, the UFC has pulled Grispi from his November 11th WEC bout with Eric Koch to fight for the UFC featherweight title. Grispi is undefeated in the WEC at 4-0 (14-1 overall) and has been relatively untested in the WEC, winning all his bouts inside the first round.

It is unsure at this time if a replacement will be named against Koch for the November 11th card or the bout will be scrapped all together.

UFC 125 is scheduled for January 1st and the main event will featuring UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar defending his belt against Gray Maynard, who holds a previous victory over the champ.

So just because Aldo is top 3 p4p means he can't lose a fight? I'd pick him too, but I'm not going to go out there and say there's no way he loses. I've seen some pretty amazing upsets over the last few years. Plus, Gripsi is a legit fighter.

 The n00bs thing was a joke, and meant sarcastically...since people who've been here since before the dawn of time were high on Grispi. I'm not some know-it-all 10er either, so please, before you jump to conclusions, try read between the lines a bit.

grispi is maybe the most oppurtunistic fighter ive ever watched .... he seems big for the weight and his skillset is very diverse that can get him wins in an instant aldo better not take this kid lightlyif aldo wins it will be expected if aldo rolls over him easy , ill be shocked if aldo loses i wouldnt be shockedi do expect aldo to win based on his level in every phase + his ability to handle the massive media crush / hype on this epic event
