UFC 113: TJ Grant vs Johnny Hendricks booked for May 1

Grant-hendricks_medium
Nova Scotia's own TJ Grant (15-3) has been tapped to try and quell the uprising of undefeated welterweight Johnny Hendricks (7-0) at the upcoming UFC 113 event from the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, on May 1, 2010, according to TopMMANews.com.

Grant was able to erase the memories of a unanimous decision loss to "Stun Gun" Kim back at UFC 100 by putting out "The Fire" at UFC 107 -- and effectively giving Kevin Burns his pink slip in the process.

The Fit Plus standout, a submission specialist, made his Octagon debut with a split decision victory over Pride FC veteran Ryo Chonan in front of his hometown fans at UFC 97: "Redemption" in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Now he returns home to try and continue his winning ways against the dangerous wrestler.

Hendricks, a incredibly gifted mat technician, scored a big 30-second win in his promotional debut against The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 7 winner Amir Sadollah at UFC 101 back in August 2009.

He kept that momentum going by tarnishing the "Golden Boy" Ricardo Funch with a unanimous decision win just four months later at UFC 107: "Penn vs. Sanchez." If he's going to make it three straight under the Zuffa banner he'll need to be weary of Grant's above-average grappling chops.

UFC 113 features the much-anticipated rematch between 205-pound division champion, Lyoto Machida, defending his belt against fellow Brazilian Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in the main event of the evening.
