Today sources close to the bout have confirmed to mixedmartialarts.com 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.

 I'm sure the UFC will take care of him. Pay him the show money, or something.

I want to see grispi get it to the ground, mostly because what I've seen of his standup doesn't make me think he'll fare to well........hopefully he proves me wrong.

I am way more excited for Grispri than Hominick. They really need to do a nice COUNTDOWN show for this and hype of Grispi since most fans have no idea who he is.
