Josh “The Fluke” Grispi (9-1) will face off against Brazilian Diego Nunes (10-2) in a featherweight bout on the WEC 37 card at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 3, according to InTheGuard.tv.

“The Fluke” is currently riding a seven-fight win streak, including his most recent first round destruction of Micah Miller at WEC 35. In fact, each of his nine career wins have been ended in the first frame (five by (T)KO and four by submission).

The Boston area fighter is among the WEC’s youngest and brightest up-and-coming stars. At only 19 years old he’s already developed into a very dangerous mixed martial artist and he still has a world of potential in front of him.

This will be his third fight in the WEC cage. He previously defeated Mark Hominick with a first round rear naked choke at WEC 32 and Miller at WEC 35 by technical knockout.

I'm interested to see if his nickname actually fits, or whether that knock out of Micah Miller was legit (though I still think it was an early stoppage). It'll be fun to watch no matter what, WEC doesn't seem to put on bad fights.

I don't think those back to back wins were fluke's. Someone in my camp is from that area, and said this guy would be one to watch. I think he is legit at that weight class.
