Grant’s latest victim was Matt Wiman at Saturday night’s UFC on Fox 6, a fighter that, like Grant, was starting to rise up the ranks.
Grant blasted Wiman, knocking him out with a combination of elbows and punches just before the end of the opening round.
The victory was the Canadian’s fourth consecutive at lightweight, not yet putting him in a position to vie for Benson Henderson’s belt, but definitely marking him for bouts with other contenders that are nearing a title shot.
“I’m gonna leave it up to the UFC. I’m just looking to take the next step,” remarked Grant after the fight.
“Top 10, that’s where I want to be. I wanna keep moving closer and closer. I’m realistic; I know there’s a lot of tough guys out there. One guy that I think would be really exciting (for me) is Jim Miller. Ultimately, that’s up to the UFC.”
