Awesome fight both of these guys are seriously under rated. Both guys are easily in the top 20 at LW. I'll be rooting for TJ Grant.

WAR CANADA

for some illogical reason, I just don't like Grant. I couldn't tell you why but I always root against him...and will do so again. WAR WIMAN

I'll never sleep on either of these guys. They're both skilled, durable, and willful enough to win most fights.

Unless this fight stalls in the clinch, it's a FOTN candidate. If Grant stuffs some of Wiman's takedowns and gets out quickly for some standup, then Wiman rebounds with some takedowns and applies GnP and good sub attempts, it'll be fun to watch.

Have you seen Grant at 155? Wiman is a big step down from Dunham.

he never smiles and basically has the same facial expression all the time ( similiar to ryan from the O.C)

this is a great fight, both guys are tough as nails but i think grant can edge wiman out for a decision.

Grant looked great against Dunham, but Wiman is no slouch and his strategy is usually solid. As much as I like Dunham, as tough as he is, he gets beaten by faster guys who can sucker him in to a striking war. It's even worse if they can stuff his takedowns (which aren't among the best among UFC LWs).

Grant's certainly surging off the Dunham win, so he'll probably be the favorite and I wouldn't be surprised if he keeps looking sharp. But Wiman's a big LW as well, and he plays to his strengths.
