Grant: Pressure for five rounds key to beating Henderson

Friday, June 14, 2013

TJ Grant rightfully earned his lightweight title shot versus Benson Henderson and they will fight at UFC 164 on August 31st. Grant today hosted a Q&A with fans before the UFC 161 weigh-ins and commented on what he feels he can do to win the fight:

“He definitely has a lot of experience in that (championship rounds) and that plays into his advantage, just being in that situation. But, I’m going to prepare for it. When I train for fights, I prepare and I spar five rounds.

It’s going to be exciting. I’m not going to let him, I’m going to pressure him, it’s going to be in your face. That’s the way I like to bring it. We’ll see how he fights five rounds when I’m attacking him the whole time.”
