TJ Grant Gets Handsome For UFC On Fox 6
UFC Canada’s official twitter account announced today that TJ Grant will meet Matt Wiman on UFC on FOX 6.
“Coming off of a FOTN win
@TJ_Grant will next face “Handsome” Matt Wiman, on the heels of his Sub of the Night win, on Jan 26 in Chicago.”
Since his decision loss to Ricardo Almeida in December 2010, Grant made the move down to Lightweight where he has gone 3-0 including the aforementioned FOTN performance over Evan Dunham at UFC 152. The now number 3 ranked Canadian Lightweight has also earned wins over Shane Roller and Carlo Prater at 155 pounds.
Wiman shocked the MMA community when he submitted the then undefeated Paul Sass at UFC on Fuel TV 5. “Handsome” is currently riding a 2 fight win streak and has won 5 of his last 6 with his lone loss over that time coming at the hands of Dennis Siver via decision.
UFC on Fox 6 goes down January 26th from the United Center in Chicago, Il. The UFC Flyweight title will be up for grabs when John Dodson challenges Demetrious Johnson and a fantastic Lightweight match up will feature Donald Cerrone versus Anthony Pettis
