Grant vs. Stun Gun at UFC 100

by Stefan Manojlovic | source:

UFC sophomore TJ Grant — after recently spinning through a a revolving door of possible opponents — is now set to tangle with Korean import Dong Hyun Kim in a welterweight showdown at UFC 100 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 11.

Members close to the situation earlier today informed about the 17-pound bout.

Grant originally agreed to battle top welterweight contender Martin Kampmann at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 9 Finale at “The Pearl” at the Palms Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, on June 20. However, “The Hitman” refused to sign the bout agreement, stating that a match with the up-and-coming Grant “didn’t make sense” for him.

Then just a month out from the event, he was penciled in to face off against hard-hitting slugger and International Fight League ( IFL) veteran, Rory Markham, but now that pursuit has fallen to the wayside after Markham had to pull out of the bout with an injury just days before it was set to go down.

As a Nova Scotian and a big DHK fan, I am not impressed with Joe Silva right now. I'd like to root for TJ, but Stun Gun is going to fustigate him

Great match up and a tough fight for both guys. I'm pulling for Grant, who has one of the most active ground games in the business.
