TJ Grant’s Next UFC Fight Announced
TJ Grant will face Carlo Prater at UFC on Fuel 3, according to TJ Grant’s Facebook status. The card will be held in Fairfax, Virginia on May 15th.
Grant (17-5) made his Lightweight debut in October against Shane Roller and finished him in impressive fashion. Against Prater, Grant will look to break his win one, lose one streak he has in the UFC and put together back-to-back wins for the first time in the big show.
Prater (30-10) won in controversial fashion against Erick Silva at UFC Rio. Silva appeared to win the fight before Mario Yamasaki indicated that Silva was disqualified for punching Prater in the back of the head.
TJ Grant joins another Canadian on the UFC on Fuel 3 card as Montreal’s Yves Jabouin who is scheduled to face Mike Easton.
