Fighter Bio


Kendall Kekoa "Da Spyder" Grove (born November 12, 1982 in Maui, Hawaii) is an American mixed martial arts fighter. Grove was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 3, a reality television show, training under Tito Ortiz. In The Ultimate Fighter 3, he won a preliminary victory against Ross Pointon by rear naked choke and in the semi-finals defeated Kalib Starnes; a rib injury incurred by Starnes during the fight caused him to verbally submit. He defeated Ed Herman in the finals in a close but unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) in the series finale, winning a six-figure contract. In his first bout since the show on October 10, 2006, Grove defeated then-undefeated Chris Price in the first round via a submission (ground and pound, due to strikes).

After the taping of the series, Grove was invited to Ortiz's training camp, Team Punishment, and has trained with Ortiz along with many of his former teammates on The Ultimate Fighter 3 at Ortiz's Big Bear City, California training facility.

Grove is a graduate of Baldwin High School in Wailuku, Hawaii.
