TJ Grant has been signed to a four fight deal with the UFC according to the fighters own facebook page.
The tough Canadian prospect is expected debut in the middleweight division this April at UFC 97 in Montreal against veteran Ryo Chonan.
“I’ve seen Chonan fight a few times in the past,” Grant told Sherdog.com. “He is a great fighter with very few weaknesses in his game who has much experience and has fought the who’s who of MMA and has some very impressive wins. Fighting him is going to bring out the best in me, and I can’t wait.”
Grant (13-2), is a smart fighter with slick submissions, as evidenced by the fact that he’s won all but won of his fights due to submission. He’s currently in the midst of four fight win streak and will look to make his mark in the ever improving UFC middleweight division.
