The UFC is looking at putting a lightweight title fight between champion Benson Henderson and newly-crowned number one contender T.J. Grant in the main event of UFC on FS1 1. UFC president Dana White stated that the bout was one of four” that the promotion was looking at for the card’s main event.
Grant was hoping the bout could end up at UFC 165 in his native Canada, saying, “Hey, let’s do it in Canada. There’s a show in Toronto. But it’s up to UFC, and I’m doing what they tell me.” That said, Grant is mainly looking to fight before his planned October wedding.
UFC on FOX Sports 1 1 will take place August 17 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. The card will feature a bout between Alistair Overeem and Travis Browne. The prospective bout between Henderson and Grant would serve as the main event.
