Grant vs. Volkmann booked for UFC 141


Looking for his fifth straight UFC victory, lightweight Jacob Volkmann (13-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) will meet T.J. Grant (17-5 MMA, 4-3 UFC) later this year at UFC 141.

UFC officials today announced the bout.

UFC 141 takes place Dec. 30 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event, which takes place on a Friday to avoid Sin City's usual New Year's Eve congestion, features a pay-per-view main card.

Really good matchup. Volkmann is underrated as hell at LW. I think Ronys Torres is a stud and Volkmann controlled him. Grant also looked awesome in his 155 debut against Roller.I still will go with Volkmann. His wrestling will be the difference.

Hopefully this fight is televised or on the main card! This is TJ's 8th UFC fight and not one has made it to the PPV.I don't think Volkmann is going to have any better luck than Roller did. At 155, TJ's too strong and his hips are too good to be held down.Always cheering for TJ - expect big things at LW!!

Lets go TJ!!!!! I really don't want to see another fight from Volkmann, his nickname should be Boring not Christmas. Christmas is something you get excited about, and I'd rather take a nap then watch this guy fight. All the guy does is hug you, and hopes he squeaks out a decision or else he gets his butt whooped. I am seriously hoping for the latter.

This is going to be another great ground war imo. Have to go with the hometown boy and say TJ by late sub or UD

Good fight. Give the winner a shot at a high level gatekeeper LW like Nate Diaz or Jim Miller, IMO.
