Josh Grispi Injured, Nam Phan Steps In to Face Matt Grice at UFC 136

via i52.tinypic.com

Things aren't getting any better for once-heralded featherweight, Josh Grispi. After two embarrassing losses in a row to Dustin Poirier and George Roop, the Massachusetts native has now suffered an injury in training and will be pulling out of his UFC 136 fight against Matt Grice. One man's loss is another's gain though, as Nam Phan has answered the call to replace Grispi, fresh off a close decision loss to Mike Brown at UFC 133 last weekend. The UFC announced the change late last night.

Grice recently returned to the UFC after a multi-year absence but suffered a TKO loss against Ricardo Lamas back in early June. This is surely a must-win for both men.
