“The Ultimate Fighter 3” winner Kendall Grove will be taking on Jake Rosholt at UFC 106 inside the Mandalay Bay Event Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The preliminary bout was confirmed today on UFC.com, along with eight other bouts.
Grove was last seen dropping a unanimous decision to Ricardo Almeida at UFC 101 back in August. The loss was rather disappointing for the Hawaiian as he was riding a two-fight winning streak heading in. Just to put this middleweight scrap into perspective, a W gives Grove three wins in his past four outings, while a loss would be his fourth in his last six fights.
Rosholt looked impressive at UFC 102 where he earned himself Submission of the Night honors for his nasty arm-triangle choke on Chris Leben. He holds an impressive 6-1 pro mark, with his only blemish coming against Dan Miller at “UFC Fight Night 17.”
As expected, former UFC heavyweight champ Brock Lesnar will headline the pay-per-view broadcast as he will be standing opposite Shane Carwin.
Lesnar has silenced most of his MMA critics since capturing the UFC title a couple scraps back. Although he only owns a 4-1 pro mark, they are some of the most exciting and dominating five fights you have ever seen.
Carwin holds a perfect 11-0 record, however hasn’t faced anyone like Lesnar. That news isn’t all bad for Carwin because not too many have faced anyone like the former WWE employee as he offers a devastating combination of size, strength and athleticism that is unmatched in the heavyweight division.
