The man who challenged the President of the United States, Jacob Volkmann will meet Canadian powerhouse, T.J. Grant in a lightweight battle at UFC 141 in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 30th, 2011. The Las Vegas based promotion made the announcement earlier today via UFC.com, meaning both men have likely signed official bout agreements.

Volkmann ended a two fight winning streak at welterweight when he dropped to the 155lbs division and is now riding a four fight winning streak inside the octagon after defeating Rony Torres, Paul Kelly, Antonio McKee and Danny Castillo over the past couple of years.

Grant is also a former welterweight who made a successful 155 pound debut when he defeated fellow grappler, Shane Roller at UFC on Versus 6. He’ll be looking for his first back-to-back win in almost three years.
