Anthony Pettis vs. Josh Thomson Set For UFC on Fox 9

There are going to be some really upset TJ Grant fans out there today, as last night the UFC announced that Josh Thomson was next in line for a shot at the UFC Lightweight Championship. It looks like Grant’s concussion won’t be fully healed by then, which means that the UFC has passed along his title shot to former Strikeforce champion Josh Thomson. What this means for TJ Grant’s future seems uncertain, but it is certain that the UFC wants to quickly act upon the Pettis hype train by booking him in one more fight for this year.

It doesn’t really seem like an awful thing, as according to UFC’s rankings it makes sense for Thomson to get a shot, kind of, but you do have to feel for Grant here.
