UFC featherweight Josh Grispi hasn't had the best 2011 in the cage so far, but he's dealing with a lot more outside of it. After going 0-2 earlier in the year, he was scheduled to face Matt Grice at UFC 136 but withdrew from the fight. According to a Boston Herald article, it wasn't an injury that forced him out. There was a lot more to it than that:

On Aug.?12, Grispi's first child Josh Jr. was born. Two days later, Josh's father, Richard, was rushed to Tufts Medical Center for emergency surgery to remove a brain tumor the size of a hockey puck. Suffice to say, the two events didn't leave Josh much time to focus on fighting.

Here's to hoping everything in his personal life gets back in order soon. I hate to see anyone deal with stuff like that. I wish nothing but the best for him and his dad.

Very tough time for Josh it sounds like. Sad to say, his dad will most likely succumb in less than 6 months time which will put even more of a burden on Josh. Best of luck to him and remain strong.
