    Josh Grispi vs. Andy Ogle added to UFC on FUEL 7 in London - Bloody Elbow

    It's a must-win situation for two young featherweights, as Josh Grispi fights Andy Ogle at UFC on FUEL 7 at Wembley Arena in London, England. Fighters Only magazine confirms:

    Josh Grispi will be fighting for his UFC career in February.

    Grispi (14-4) has been matched with Andy Ogle (8-2) for the UFC’s visit to London, England on Saturday February 16, 2013, sources close to the situation have revealed to Fighters Only.
    Grispi was once the #1 contender to fight Jose Aldo following the WEC merger. But it looks like he would've been horrifically beaten had Aldo been healthy enough to compete at UFC 125. Grispi was soundly beaten by Dustin Poirier on short notice, then stopped with a body punch against George Roop, and was most recently submitted by Rani Yahya with a north-south choke. He has effectively been dominated for his entire UFC career, and at 24 years old he's gone from highly regarded featherweight to someone who does not look "UFC caliber".

    Ogle competed on season 15 of The Ultimate Fighter. He defeated Mike Rio in the season premiere before eventual runner-up Al Iaquinta stopped him in the first round. The Englishman dropped to featherweight and fought on the last FUEL show in England in September against TUF 14 alum Akira Corassani. Ogle lost by split decision in a fight that was seen by most as a win for him.

    This along with Matt Riddle vs. Che Mills are the only fights on this February 16th card. Jimi Manuwa, Tom Watson, Paul Sass, and Terry Etmi are all scheduled to compete on this card with their opponents TBD.

    Damn, Grispi has dropped off since being on the frigging cusp of a title shot.

    Ya, he probably should have waited for his shot rather than fighting Poirier. With that said, judging from his performances in the octagon, he wouldn't have done well in a title fight anyway.

    He's gotten his ass handed to him in the last couple of fights. He'll probably be cut if he makes it 4 losses in a row.
