UFC officials announced the new match-up earlier today.
T.J. Grant is currently riding a three fight winning streak, most recently defeating Evan Dunham via unanimous decision at UFC 152 in September. Prior to that he scored a unanimous decision victory over Carlo Prater at UFC on FUEL TV 3 in May, and a submission victory over Shane Roller in October 2011. Grant has not been defeated since December 2010, where he dropped a unanimous decision loss to Ricardo Almeida at UFC 124. He now has the chance to extend his winning streak to four with a big win over Wiman.
Matt Wiman is currently on a two fight winning streak, most recently defeating Paul Sass via submission at UFC on FUEL TV 5 in September. Prior to that he scored a unanimous decision victory over Mac Danzig at “UFC Live: Cruz vs. Johnson” in October 2011, and dropped a unanimous decision loss to Dennis Siver at UFC 132 in July. Wiman will no doubt look to put another notch in the win column with a big performance against Grant.
