T.J. Grant isn't happy about the supposed conspiracy theory surrounding his removal from a title shot, and says he isn't guaranteed one even when he returns from injury.

You didn't hear? Nick Diaz is moving down and Dana says he gets the next crack at it.

I think TJ should be the man to fight the winner of Bendo and Pettis.
TKZ was injured for a long time, his first fight back he gets a title shot against Aldo.
TJ coming of his injury is more worthy IMO to fight the Bendo/Pettis winner than TKZ fighting Aldo for the title.

If TJ doesn't get a shot at the winner of Henderson vs Pettis that's some straight bullshit

If Henderson wins I'd be shocked if TJ doesn't get the next shot.

If Pettis does then I think all bets are off.

I think Hendo and Pettis fight to a close decision... SO close that White makes them fight again! In the meantime, TJ fights another dude to stay tuned up. Maybe the winner of Cerrone-Dos Anjos or Josh Thompson-Somebody. Then he gets his title shot. As much as I don't like it, I could definitely see it playing out like this.

Not that he deserves it but in the meantime I wouldn't mind seeing Grant vs. Nate Diaz. I guess Grant vs. Thomson makes more sense tho...

For some unjustified reason, this sad news makes me root against Pettis more.

How can Grant not be getting a title shot? I think his run the past few years has been way above what Pettis has accomplished.

I say TJ against Gilbert Melendez for the next shot at the title. That is after Gill crushes Diego! But I could see tj vs Thompson too.
