TJ Grant Scheduled for UFC 152

By:

The UFC announced today that TJ Grant (18-5) will be appearing on the UFC 152 card in Toronto on September 22.  His opponent will be Evan Dunham (13-2).

Grant has been unstoppable since dropping down to Lightweight.  He submitted Shane Roller in his 155 lb debut and then won a unanimous decision over Carlo Prater.

Dunham was considered a Lightweight title contender after defeating Tyson Griffin for his fourth consecutive victory in the UFC.  However,  a controversial loss to Sean Sherk and then a TKO loss to Melvin Guillard dropped him down the UFC ladder.  However, Dunham has since righted his ship and, like Grant, is on a two fight win streak.  His latest win over Nik Lentz.

UFC 152 already features Canadian Rory MacDonald taking on BJ Penn and a Flyweight title match between Joseph Benavidez and Demetrious Johnson.

    Phenomenal. TJ teaches my Jiu Jitsu class from time to time. He’s a beast. Close fight on paper.
