T.J. Grant replaces Goulet to face Dong Hyun Kim at UFC 100 on July 11

Welterweight Canadian standout Jonathan “The Road Warrior” Goulet (22-10) was scheduled to face Dong Hyun “Stun Gun” Kim (11-0-1) at UFC 100 on July 11th, however, a dislocated shoulder suffered in training has forced Goulet to pull out of the fight according to a press release received by PRO MMA (promma.info) on Thursday.

Replacing Goulet in the preliminary bout will be fellow Canadian T.J. Grant (14-2) who will be making his second Octagon appearance. Grant’s UFC debut came back in April when he defeated PRIDE veteran Ryo Chonan (15-10) via split decision at UFC 97.

A purple belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, 25-year-old T.J. Grant will be facing the toughest opponent of his career when he goes up against the “Stun Gun.” A fourth-degree Judo black belt from South Korea, Kim is undefeated inside and outside the Octagon.

UFC Fight Night 16: Fight for the Troops took place tonight in Fayetteville, North Carolina and was broadcast live on SPIKE TV.

There were some great fights for a great cause. A few highlights were Steve Cantwell’s arm breaking submission, Dale Hartt’s leg-breaking kick, and Josh Koscheck’s complete wrecking of Yoshiyuki Yoshida.

It’s always entertaining when there’s a terrible referee and Joe Rogan starts going off on them on air.

In between the fights, viewers got to learn about TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and hear the stories of surviving veterans. The main purpose of the show was so UFC fans can help raise funds for the National Intrepid Center for Excellence at http://fallenheroesfund.ufc.com.
