Canadian T.J. Grant is on a five fight win streak; next stop is a title shot vs. UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson.
“It was a shocker," said UFC president Dana White. "(Grant) just turned it on and is wrecking everybody, literally wrecking everybody.”
Some complained that Junior dos Santos rather than Grant deserved the $50,000 Knockout of the Night performance bonus, but White isn't having it.
“For T.J. to knock out (Maynard) the way he did tonight, he earned it," said White.
Henderson was asked about the upcoming fight on Twitter.
So, TJ Grant up next on the docket. How you feelin' champ?
