Welterweights Ricardo Almeida and T.J. Grant are in talks to compete at UFC 124: "Georges St. Pierre vs. Koscheck 2" in Montreal on December 11 according to "Showdown" Joe Ferraro.

"Big Dog" was last seen in action against Matt Hughes at UFC 117. In a fight that many thought he would win, Almeida fell victim to a vicious front headlock from Hughes that put him to sleep.

It was Ricardo's second bout at 170 since dropping down from middleweight. He won his debut at the weight class against Matt Brown at UFC 111 via a 2nd round submission.

The Renzo Gracie-trained fighter also previously defeated Kendall Grove at UFC 101 last summer by way of unanimous decision.

T. J. Grant has alternated wins and losses in his last five contests. 

Grant is coming off a win over Julio Paulino at UFC 119. Prior to that bout, T.J. lost to Johny Hendricks at UFC 113, defeated Kevin Burns at UFC 107, and fell victim to Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 100.

The 26-year-old Canadian is 16-4 overall with a record of 3-2 since coming over to the UFC.
