Grice vs. Larsen Featherweight Bout Booked For UFC 166

A featherweight contest between Matt Grice and Jeremy Larsen has been booked for UFC 166, taking place this fall.

UFC officials announced the bout late yesterday.

‘UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos III’ takes place on October 19th from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. In the main event UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will take on former champion, Junior dos Santos to end their epic trilogy on pay-per-view.

Both Larsen and Grice are in need of a win to try to keep their place on the UFC Roster.

Larsen is coming in with back-to-back losses inside the UFC’s Octagon following an impressive run on the regional circuit and appearance on TUF 15.

Grice is on his second stint with the UFC and after a failed bid in his first appearance that saw him go 1-4, the lightweight turned featherweight, is still climbing an uphill battle that finds him 1-2 since resigning with the UFC.

This bout will be featured on the preliminary portion of the nights fight card.
