Former lightweight title contender TJ Grant discusses his long road back to the UFC after suffering a concussion last year. read news >>
The last time we saw surging lightweight T.J. Grant inside the Octagon, he was carving up Gray Maynard en route to a first-round TKO. That beyond-impressive performance set Grant up for a title shot vs. then-champion Benson Henderson.
