With the top three fights now in place, the UFC is adding more and more bouts to fill out the UFC 152 card in Toronto on September 22nd. One of those new announcements is in the lightweight division, and should be pretty interesting. The UFC confirmed the bout via press release when they formally announced the card earlier today:
In addition, Calgary’s TJ Grant looks to extend his winning streak to three when he meets Evan Dunham in a lightweight contest.
Dunham (13-2) quickly rose through the ranks by winning his first four bouts in the UFC. He narrowly lost a controversial decision to Sean Sherk and was finished by Melvin Guillard, but has got back on track with wins over Shamar Bailey and Nik Lentz. Grant (13-5) dropped to lightweight last October and won his first two bouts in the division by submitting Shane Roller and taking a decision over Carlo Prater.
It's unknown if the bout will be on the main card or not at this time.
