Josh Grispi LC Davis WEC 49

A featherweight bout is likely to be added to the upcoming “Ultimate Fighter Season 13 Finale” fight card on June 4 pitting Josh Grispi against George Roop.

Verbal agreements are in place for the fight according to sources speaking to on Sunday. The Boston Herald first reported the rumored bout.

Grispi (14-2) looks to get back on track after suffering a one-sided loss to Dustin Poirier in his Octagon debut at UFC 125 in January. The New Englander had originally been scheduled to face UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo at the event, but an injury sidelined the Brazilian and Grispi drew Poirier instead.

It did not end well for him.

Also looking to bounce back after a loss in his last fight is former “Ultimate Fighter” cast member George Roop (11-7-1). Roop fell to training partner Mark Hominick in late January, and hopes to get back to form when he faces Grispi in June.

While the bout has not been signed at this point, both fighters have verbally agreed to the bout.
