UFC on Fox 6 Update: Lightweights T.J. Grant, Matt Wiman Added to Jan. 26 Chicago Bill
UFC officials Wednesday announced another new addition to the
UFC on Fox 6
bill, as T.J. Grant
faces Matt Wiman
Jan. 26 at Chicago’s United Center.
The evening’s main draw, which airs live on Fox’s flagship network,
will be headlined by a flyweight title tilt between Demetrious
Johnson and John Dodson.
The event is also expected to feature an anticipated lightweight
clash between WEC veterans Anthony
Pettis and Donald
Cerrone, as well as a light heavyweight showdown pitting former
Jackson against the hard-hitting Glover
Grant, 28, has won three straight fights heading into his meeting
with Wiman. The Canadian competed twice this year, kicking off 2012
by outpointing Carlo Prater
in May before taking a hard-fought unanimous decision from Evan Dunham
in a “Fight of the Night” winning performance on Sept. 22 at UFC
Wiman, meanwhile, has emerged victorious in five of his last six
outings. “Handsome” returned to competition on Sept. 29 after
spending nearly a year on the shelf, tapping submission specialist
Sass with a first-round armbar at UFC on Fuel TV 5. Wiman is a
13-time Octagon veteran and holds notable wins over Mac Danzig,
Tavares and Michihiro
