T.J. Grant Granted Title Shot, Faces Bendo at UFC 164 in Milwaukee

In April, reigning lightweight champion Benson Henderson learned that his next opponent would be the winner of UFC 160’s Gray Maynard vs. TJ Grant.

In May, Henderson watched along with the world as Grant TKO’d Maynard in the first round to earn the contender spot. And now Bendo has a date for the fight to boot: August 31st, as the headlining bout of Milwaukee’s UFC 164.
