A featherweight match-up of Leonard “Bad Boy” Garcia and Matt “The Real One” Grice has been added to the UFC on FX 3 card which takes place on June 8th. UFC officials announced the bout earlier today via Twitter.

The popular Garcia (15-8) will be looking to get back on the winning track after after dropping his last two and three of his past four bouts. Garcia is one of the more entertaining, if not the most technical, fighters who is currently in his second stint with the UFC. He holds wins over Jens Pulver, Nam Phan and “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung.

Grice (14-4) is also on his second tour with the UFC after previously competing with them from 2007-2009. He returned to the promotion at UFC on Versus 4 where he would suffer a technical knockout loss to Ricardo Lamas which put an end to a four fight winning streak. Grice has recorded ten of career wins by stoppage with six wins coming by knockout and four by submission.

The location of UFC on FX 3 will be determined by fan votes in the Harley-Davidson Hometown Throwdown contest.
