UFC Quick Quote: TJ Grant knows what's at stake against Kevin Burns at UFC 107


Props: The Chronicle Herald


"This is a big fight for me. I really want to impress the UFC, but obviously the main thing is to get a win. I don’t want to fight like I did (at UFC 100). I don’t take anything away from [Dong Hyun Kim]. He beat me. I didn’t really have enough time to prepare for a specific opponent … but it’s the UFC. You can get called up at any time and you’ve got to be ready. He was a tricky guy. I think I could have done better in the fight, but I didn’t so I’ve got to move on. I’ve seen (Kevin Burns) fight a few times and he’s had some wars. He’s a tough guy. If you hit him he’s going to hit you back. Overall he’s a good fighter and I think the two of us should get the fans going pretty crazy in the first fight of the night. He knows what’s at stake and so do I."

UFC welterweight TJ Grant knows the value of a win -- or perhaps the cost of a loss that puts you in a 0-2 hole in the UFC, a place his opponent Kevin Burns currently sits coming into UFC 107: "Penn vs. Sanchez" from the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee this Saturday, Dec. 12. Grant is trying to erase the memories of a decision loss to "Stun Gun" Kim back at UFC 100 and may have all he can handle against "The Fire," who may be fighting to save his spot on the roster. Expect fireworks as both fighters try to send the other man packing. Predictions?
