Benson Henderson Excited Knowing T.J. Grant Is Next

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.
