FIRST EVER ULTIMATE FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIP® FEATHERWEIGHT TITLE FIGHT CO-HEADLINES UFC® 125

UFC FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
JOSE ALDO vs. JOSH GRISPI

Live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena – Tickets Are On Sale Now
Las Vegas, NV (USA) – The newest addition to the Ultimate Fighting Championship® roster of world champions, featherweight title holder Jose Aldo, will make his Octagon™ debut on Saturday, January 1st when he defends his 145-pound crown against 22-year old phenom Josh “The Fluke” Grispi in the co-main event at UFC 125: RESOLUTION, presented by Tequila Cazadores and live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Saturday, January 1, 2011. Two titles will be on the line during this New Year’s Day card as Frankie “The Answer” Edgar, coming off back-to-back wins over UFC great BJ Penn, defends his title in a rematch against undefeated No. 1 contender Gray “The Bully” Maynard in the main event.

“Jose Aldo is one of the best fighters in the world, pound for pound, and you’ll see why on January 1st,” said Dana White, UFC President. “Aldo can do it all, and his historic arrival in the UFC as its first featherweight champion is going to set an exciting new standard. But Josh Grispi is a finisher, and he's got every intention of taking the featherweight title back to Boston.”

This bout marks the first time a featherweight championship match is being held in the world-renowned UFC Octagon, adding a historic touch to a stacked event which features the UFC lightweight title fight between champion Edgar and the undefeated Maynard, as well as featured matchups that include Clay Guida vs. Takanori Gomi, Chris Leben vs. Brian Stann, Nate Diaz vs. Dong Hyun Kim and Brandon Vera vs. Thiago Silva.

A high-ranking resident of the pound-for-pound list, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s Jose Aldo (fighting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil / 18-1 professional record) has taken the world by storm since his debut in the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) organization in 2008. Winner of eight in a row in the organization, including wins over Urijah Faber, Mike Brown, Manvel Gamburyan, Jonathan Brookins, and Cub Swanson, Aldo’s dynamic style and finishing power has drawn comparisons to some of the greatest fighters to ever lace up the gloves, including countryman and UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. Now the 24-year old Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt brings his otherworldly talent to the Octagon for what is expected to be his toughest test to date.

The 22-year old Boston native Josh Grispi (fighting out of Boston, Mass. / 14-1) may be nicknamed “The Fluke”, but his performances over the last two years have been anything but lucky. A gifted battler who can handle himself wherever the fight goes, Grispi’s last five wins have seen him finish The Ultimate Fighter 12’s Spencer Paige, Mark Hominick, Micah Miller, former UFC champ Jens Pulver, and LC Davis all in the first round, with no bout lasting more than 2:55. On January 1st, he’ll make his UFC debut with an opportunity to add a championship belt and another high-profile victim to his resume.
