Maynard vs. Grant to determine lightweight no.1 contender


It will have been almost a year since Gray Maynard's last bout when he fights TJ Grant on May 25th, but it will be an important bout as the winner will now fight for the UFC lightweight title:

UFC president Dana White, closing out the UFC on Fox 7 post-fight press conference, quelled any speculation about a rematch by announcing that another pair of contenders would determine who gets the next shot at Henderson.

Gray Maynard is ranked number three (in the official UFC Rankings). TJ Grant is ranked number seven,” said White. “Those guys are gonna fight at UFC 160 on May 25. The winner of that fight is gonna fight Ben Henderson next.”

I expect Maynard to take the fight against Grant. And Maynard lose against Benson by a unanimous decision. No split decision.Who Benson fights after that is anyone's guess, but it won't be the lower weigted Aldo or Pettis.Those guys are at the weight class for a reason.

nobody wants to see either of those 2 fight for a, neither one deserves it right now!! I'd rather see Thompson vs Bendo....

I think Gray will finish Bendo. He has the size and wrestling to neutralize everything Bendo can throw at him.

Agreed. He done goofed. Now he has a tougher opponent and a hard cut to deal with

None want to admit he's clearly number 2. He would take both kz And lamas out. No disrespect he's just a special athlete.
