UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson found out Saturday night he’ll be facing T.J. Grant for his fourth title defense.
Grant finished Gray Maynard at UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2, bombarding the former contender with a barrage of rights and knees. The UFC previously announced that the winner would face Henderson next.
“Feeling giddy…love knowing who’s next,” Henderson posted in response to a question on Twitter. “Wowser!!! TJ Grant it is.”
No potential date has been talked about concerning the contest. Henderson fought last month, defeating Gilbert Melendez.
