Josh Grispi to Face George Roop at TUF 13 Finale

(If Roop can kill a zombie, he has the potential to do the same to a grappler from Plympton, Mass. Still, this is Grispi’s fight to lose.)

According to a report by The Boston Herald, Josh Grispi‘s booby prize for losing to Jose Aldo‘s UFC 125 replacement, Dustin Poirier, will be a match-up with the fighter that current number one contender Mark Hominick recently beat to leapfrog “The Fluke” to a title shot.

Grispi (12-2) has agreed to face George Roop (11-7) on June 4 at The Ultimate Fighter 13 finale at the Palms in Las Vegas. Although it did for Hominisk, a win over Roop may not raise the 22-year-old’s stock enough to earn him a shot at the winner of Aldo-Hominick, considering there are other top-notch featherweights like Poirier, Chad Mendes and Diego Nunes waiting in the wings.

A win over a marquee fighter like seasoned vet and fellow Massachusian Kenny Florian could catapult the 22-year-old back into title contention, but he’ll have to get past Roop first, which will be no easy task. In his last two bouts prior to the KO loss to Hominick, the Team Tompkins fighter knocked out “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sun Jung and battled to a split draw with three-time Fight of the Night winner, Leonard Garcia.

Also on the card will be a lightweight scrap between former WEC 155-pound champ Anthony “Showtime” Pettis and contender Clay Guida.

Thanks Rex! It will be nice to have those back. I hope the 'sources close to the Potato' wasn't Fowlkes, because you trust a word that guys says.

Why am I the only one that's pissed that two dicks coming off losses get rewarded with a main event fight? Why is no one talking about how badass Dustin Poirier is and why he isn't getting that main event fight or a big name fight. He fucking MURDERED Grispi and yet no one wants to address that. Lets talk about a fight with Whoop-di-doop, Roop that means piddly dick.

Josh Grispi got demolished by Porier, that said he showed toughness lasting all three rounds.

Shhhh. Keep Plympton a secret

Thank you, WP. For the deluge of asshole bots and spammers at CP.

Back to the story, Grispi better knock that lanky Roop into the stands. Hilarious watching him wobble around after Hominik fight, especially after he acted like a douche after the Korean Zombie KO.
