Josh Grispi was once a top contender in the UFC and WEC. In fact, Grispi was slated as UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo’s first challenger when the UFC and WEC merged back in 2010.
Unfortunately for Grispi, Aldo was forced to withdraw from the scheduled title bout at UFC 125, and instead Grispi fought Dustin Poirier and lost by decision. After that fight, Grispi lost three more in a row and was cut from the UFC.
His fall from grace became a lot more gruesome today when reports surfaced that Grispi had been charged with violent domestic abuse of his wife in Massachusetts.
According to the Taunton Daily Gazette, Grispi “is being held without bail on domestic abuse and assault charges following his arrest on Monday”. Police Officer Richard Harvey told the gazette that “it’s the worst case of domestic I’ve ever seen.”
According to reports, Grispi trained his dog to attack and maul his wife, Kaitlyn Grispi. Her injuries included a concussion, dog bites on her leg, and a broken wrist.
While searching the house on Monday the police also found a “pot farm”, and weapons with ammunition. The weapons were apparently not stored properly, and Grispi will also be charged for that infraction.
Grispi is set to be charged with a slew of assault and domestic abuse charges, a charge for his cultivation and possession of marijuana, as well gun charges.
Domestic abuse is a very severe crime, especially when you consider that Grispi is a trained martial artist. We here at FanSided wish Kaitlyn a quick and painless recovery.
