Former UFC lightweight contender Gray Maynard will return to action this May, taking on T.J. Grant at UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva II. UFC officials confirmed the bout late Wednesday night.
Maynard (11-1-1) was expected to face Joe Lauzon in December, but an injury knocked him out. “The Bully” suffered torn knee ligaments and was sidelined with surgery.
Grant (20-5) has won four straight and five of his last six, with all four of his recent wins coming since a move down from welterweight. He is 7-3 in his UFC career.
The card goes down May 25 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
