TJ Grant must have accidentally fallen down a flight of stairs.

UFC 161, UFC 163, and UFC 164 has now lost its main event due to injury. It happens in almost every PPV card now. This is the only ppv that has gotten better out of those three, it is bound to happen by law of average that one of the injuries for the UFC works out for the better.

Why must everything be a conspiracy?
Fighters get injured all the time.
Wouldn't it be a lot easier for the UFC to just give Pettis the tittle shot without forcing Grant to fake a injury?

^Because there's a ton of MMA fans that, as Luke Thomas puts it, need their heads checked.

Conspiracies are usually the crutches of irrational and ignorant people who can't see past their own biases.

I'm very disappointed with this news.

I'd much rather see Grant fight Henderson at this point, but I'll admit that I'm actually expecting that match-up to still happen. Henderson is much further developed as a fighter now than when he last fought Pettis. Though there's not as much evidence to draw from, I don't think Pettis has shown anywhere near the same amount of development in the same time period, and I expect that fighting in Milwaukee will turn out to be to his detriment. It will likely derail his adherence to any proper game-plan. He seems like he'll get over-excited and over-confident, get too showboat-ey, and potentially succumb to an A. Silva-esque fate for it. I wouldn't be surprised to either see Henderson submit Pettis or watch Pettis blow his wad early and get ground out for a decision loss at the hands of a much improved Henderson whom he'll have wrongly expected to be the same fighter he fought before.

Planned or not i do not really care....its a great fucking fight and it has been a long time coming.

But i do think it is kind of harsh to throw these conspiracy theories around because they mainly say something to the detriment of TJ Grants character. That is really undeserved in my opinion because i do not think that dude would step away from his title-shot for anybody.

Its finally a replacement that makes more or the same amount of sense though so we as fans cannot really complain that much can we.
