UFC Featherweight Josh Grispi

On Friday morning, the world’s largest MMA organization announced two fights for their UFC 136 show on October 8th. The event takes place inside the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Josh Grispi (pictured) will meet Matt Grice in a featherweight scrap, while Dave Herman will tango with Mike Russow in a heavyweight affair.

According to the trusty rumor mill, a 145-pound title tilt between champion Jose Aldo and Kenny Florian could headline the pay-per-view broadcast. Although the UFC has yet to announce the night’s featured attraction, they did confirm Chael Sonnen will make his highly anticipated return against Brian Stann in the event.
