UFC 160 video: T.J. Grant discusses Gray Maynard, potential title shot

Lightweight contender TJ Grant talks with Ariel Helwani about his upcoming fight with Gray Maynard, as well as his reaction to finding out that he's one win away from a title shot.

All the attention is focused on the heavyweights at UFC 160, but lightweights T.J. Grant and Gray Maynard are also set to fight for the next title shot on the PPV broadcast. Ariel Helwani interviewed Grant about his fight with Gray as well as how he felt when Dana White announced that this was for the right to challenge champion Ben Henderson. This is Grant's first time on any UFC main card and he's flown under the radar as far as fanfare, something Helwani also addresses in the interview.

You can watch the full video above the string of words I've just written.
