TJ Grant Out & Down

20130916-222701.jpg

According to the number one contender himself,TJ Grant, he is not medically cleared to fight Dec 14th against Anthony Pettis. Hear from the number one contender here.

My guess? I suspect that Josh Thomson, who made a great showing against Nate Diaz, or Gilbert Melendez, who some believe beat Ben Henderson, will get the nod. Both former Strikeforce vets could provide a great match up stylistically. Due to Thomson jawing with Pettis earlier this year, I think that fight is intriguing, but I think Gilbert makes it more competitive. My money is on Thomson getting the greenlight since it’s easier to sell him coming off a TKO win against Nate Diaz than El Niño coming off the decision loss.
