TJ Grant has been riding a rocket ship since making the move to lightweight. He now believes he's ready, and UFC president Dana White agrees.

although i think he is ready for top level competition and im becoming a huge fan of his, i just think Miller might be a bad matchup for him.

Grant and Dos Anjos should test themselves against some established lightweights coming off losses... Joe Lauzon and Donald Cerrone?

Sounds like the first main card bout for UFC 159 in New Jersey.

i agree. he looked really good, but miller is probably too much for him at this point. cerrone would be a great fight for him and a chance for cerrone to get back on track.

Jon Tuck?

As far as the Miller fight goes, I'm all for it. It might be a case of too much too soon but Grant has proven in his last two fights that he's too much for middle of the pack guys. I say give him a top guy to see where he really stands.

Hopefully he keeps improving.

I like him but I am worried.... He looked very vulnerable to leg kicks against Wiman even though Grant won in spectacular fashion with good punching and hard elbows. I could see Dos Anjos or Barboza really going to town with leg kicks and then using better footwork to escape.

These fighters would be a tough test. I think he would actually fair better against miller due to styles.

I disagree, Tj is tough as nails, his stand up looked awesome, and he has a granite chin to match. Another plus is that Tj will be the bigger fighter too.

Battle of the beards ! make it happen Dana !!!

People thought Wiman was going to be tough or even win. Hilarious. Grant didn't even need a whole round. I say he should send Miller to 145.

nice, I'm all for it, i like to see guys ask for tougher competition instead of being ok with being babied..

Grant vs RDA sounds fantastic to me. Both guys are right there when it comes to the top 10.
But with the Lightweight division being so stacked there isn't room for either fighter. However i would have to place the winner in the top 10. No questions asked.
