Tyson Griffin vs. Manny Gamburyan at UFC on Versus 4 on June 26th

Former lightweight stand-out, Tyson Griffin will face TUF 5 runner-up, Manny Gamburyan in a featherweight bout at UFC on Versus 4 on June 26th at a yet to be disclosed location. The UFC announced the fight via their official website today.

Griffin will make his featherweight debut after a trio of losses at lightweight to Evan Dunham, Takanori Gomi and Nik Lentz, although it seems the promotion want to keep the exciting youngster around, one could always wonder if he is one more loss away from being axed.

Gamburyan was last seen in action getting picked apart, eventually losing losing via TKO to featherweight champion, Jose Aldo in the second round. He was set to make his UFC return at UFC 128 last month against Raphael Assuncao but a back injury forced him out.
