Canadian import T.J. Grant will meet AMA Fight Club representative Charlie Brenneman in a preliminary welterweight matchup at UFC Live 4 “Marquardt vs. Johnson” on June 26 at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh. A 12-fight lineup has been finalized for the event, which will air live on the Versus network.

Grant (Pictured; file photo) last fought at UFC 124 in December, when he dropped a unanimous decision to former middleweight King of Pancrase Ricardo Almeida at the Bell Centre in Montreal. The 27-year-old Nova Scotia-based Brazilian jiu-jitsu brown belt has secured 12 of his 16 career victories by submission. Grant holds a 3-3 mark inside the Octagon. In 21 professional outings, he has been finished only once.

A former high school Spanish teacher, Brenneman has not competed since UFC “Fight for the Troops 2” in January, when he posted a unanimous decision victory against Nova União representative Amilcar Alves at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. The 30-year-old Hollidaysburg, Pa., native has won eight of his last nine bouts. Brenneman made his UFC debut in a little more than a year ago, defeating 2009 Dream welterweight grand prix finalist Jason High.

A matchup pairing former middleweight King of Pancrase Nate Marquardt with Anthony Johnson will headline UFC Live 4. It will serve as Marquardt’s debut at 170 pounds.
