There will only be one lightweight bout at UFC 152 and it will take place on the preliminary card on FX as TJ Grant (18-5) takes on Evan Dunham (13-2).
Both fighters are currently on a two fight winning streak and Grant has gone undefeated in the UFC as a lightweight.
Grant entered the UFC as a welterweight and moved down to the lightweight division after his lost to Ricardo Almeida at UFC 124.
His lightweight debut came at UFC on Versus last year and defeated Shane Roller by verbal submission. He returned earlier this year and defeated Carlo Prater by unanimous decision.
Dunham has won five of his last seven fights and one of those losses was a controversial split decision to Sean Sherk. After losing to Sherk and Melvin Guillard, he has won two in a row and will look to move back into title contention with a win against Grant.
Grant is known for his submissions and it’s not likely that Dunham will be submitted in the fight, as he has never lost by a decision. Dunham is known for having fight of the night bouts and this could be the fight of the night as well.
TheMMAReport.com predicts that this fight will last all three round and sees Evan Dunham getting a decision victory.
