Two talented lightweights looking for a third consecutive win in the Octagon are set to scrap on September 22 at UFC 152, as a bout between Evan Dunham and T.J. Grant has been announced for the show. Each is also a noted finisher based with 24 stoppages in 31 total victories between them.
UFC officials confirmed the match-up earlier this week.
The 13-2 Dunham is coming off triumphs over Shamar Bailey and Nik Lentz to add to his resume already featuring past success against the likes of Marcus Aurelio, Efrain Escudero, and Tyson Griffin.
Grant, a submission-specialist by trade, has tapped out thirteen opponents en route to an overall record of 18-5. He was last seen outpointing Carlo Prater this past May.
