Troy Mandaloniz was on Sweep the Leg Radio today, and said that his regular training partner, Kendall Grove, was offered a fight on the UFC 80 card, that will take place in England in January, and he gladly accepted it.

No opponent was named, but he will begin training soon for it, according to Troy. Grove is coming off a knockout loss to Patrick Cote, and looks to regain his momentum.

Hope he does, I like Kendall a lot.

I wanna see him fight Maia or Quarry. Unfortunately, I think he'd lose both fights...

Yeah, me too. I think the other fights are a little too much for him so soon. He's got youth on his side though, cant wait to see how he ends up. I think top 5-7 before all is said and done.

quarry is a possibility, i think the others are too dangerous for grove and i think all would beat him, but quarry sounds to me like a very big possibility, grove should handle him but it could be a tough fight.

I've never been all that impressed with grove, I think him and Herman should rematch, I believe Herman has progressed alot more than Grove since their first meeting.

Jason Macdonald - would lose by ko to kendal. kendal is a go full out fighter and will bring everything he has at you and macdonald doesnt know what to do with people like that.

Travis Lutter - Kendall would stop a couple take downs by travis lutter and land some knees but travis would evetually get kendall down and submit him within 20 mins of being on the ground. those long arms and legs would be easy to grab and controll for a submition

Damian Maia - we havent seen much out of damian but his record stands for its self uindefeated and 5 of his 6 wins coming within the 1st round from from his perfromance against jensen i think if he got kendall down he would be able to submit him but i dont think he would be able to take him down and would take to man knees and elbows and be tkoed

Nate quarry - kendall would KO Nate. nate has NEVER impressed me

thales leites - thales would strike with kendall and relize that kendall is to lanky and eventually take kendall down but dont know if he could do alot with it so i think it would go all three rounds and thales would evtually win split desision

I was very happy to see Cote Ko him. Grove will be nothing but a glorified gate keeper in that div.

Agree with the Demian comments, his Jiu-Jitsu was awesome against Ryan.

I like Jensen, so bad he got caught on his 1st two fights. Would like to see him against a striker and training more on sub. defense.

What I would like to see next in the 185 Div...
For Kendall ..... give him McDonald, he wants to beat him soooo bad.
Maia vs Leites ..... great JJ match
Jensen vs Terry Martin
