Canadian welterweight TJ Grant will fight accomplished wrestler Johny Hendricks at UFC 113, which is expected to take place on May 1 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, according to Top MMA News.
Grant (15-3) debuted in the UFC last April with a decision over Ryo Chonan, but had his five-fight win streak snapped in a July loss to Dong Hyun Kim before rebounding in December with a first-round TKO of Kevin Burns.
Hendricks (7-0), a four-time All-American and three-time Big 12 champion at Oklahoma State, won back-to-back fights in the WEC before moving to the UFC, where he picked up wins over Amir Sadollah in August and Ricardo Funch in December.
UFC 113 has yet to be officially announced, but is expected to be headlined by the anticipated rematch between light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.
