WEC featherweight contender Josh Grispi (13-1 MMA, 3-0 WEC) returns after what will be a yearlong layoff when he faces fellow contender L.C. Davis (16-2 MMA, 3-0 WEC) at WEC 49 which takes place at Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on June 20th, 2010.

Grispi confirmed his place on the Edmonton card via Facebook and MMAjunkie has since confimed that the bout agreements are being finalized.

The night’s main card airs on Versus. The sources said Grispi vs. Davis will be part of the night’s broadcast. Chris Horodecki vs. Ed Ratcliff is also on the card and most likely will be on the main card aswell.

Grispi’s last fight was June 7th, 2009 at WEC 41, submitting Jens Pulver in 33 seconds of the first round. He has since been sidelined by an ankle injury.

Davis is riding a three-fight winning streak, defeating Javier Vasquez, Diego Nunes and most recently at WEC 47, Deividas Taurosevicius.
