Benson Henderson vs. T.J. Grant possible at UFC on FOX Sports 1

 

T.J. Grant is on a five-fight win streak, as UFC president Dana White put it 'wrecking' his way through the lightweight division. Now he has a title shot, vs. reigning lightweight champ Benson Henderson. Grant and his fiancee just had a baby and are getting married in October. The Canadian wants to coordinate his professional personal lives - getting the title shot before the wedding.

White says the UFC will be accomodating, looking at put Grant on UFC on FOX Sports 1, at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass. on Aug. 17th.

"There’s four fights we’re looking at right now for that show. That’s one of them," White said.

Announced fights for the card to date include Alistar Overeem vs. Travis Browne, Joe Lauzon vs. Michael Johnson, and Thiago Alves vs. Matt Brown.

The fight launches the new sports channel, which goes live that day. The UFC will have a major presence on UFC on FOX Sports 1, which will be the home for "The Ultimate Fighter" and "UFC Tonight" plus of course live fights.

JDS-Velasquez 3 kinda makes sense. After all 1 was the headliner and only fight on UFC on Fox 1. However the ppv money that would be lost doesn't. Or if JDS is suspended how long will he have to wait. So as nice as it sounds, it will not happen. Bendo should get partial ownage of FOX after Aug 17th. Seeing how he's drawing in all those ratings.

Looking forward to this fight but I hope it's not the fox sports 1 main. Bendo seems to always be the fox headliner.

He said many times he'd rather fight on free TV then PPV.I guess not many champions think that way, so they are using him to draw ;)

Bendo must not sell a lot of PPV because all his fights are free lately. Idk why either, he seems nice enough and is brutal in the cage. I guess for some fans if its not a KO than the fight sucked.

Bendo's new nickname is gonna be Fox. Poor guy is missing out on those PPV% cuts.
