UFC Lightweight Gray Maynard

On Thursday night, the planet’s premier mixed martial arts promotion announced former lightweight top contender Gray Maynard (Pictured) will meet TJ Grant at UFC 160.

Maynard sees his first action since taking a split decision win over Clay Guida in June. “The Bully” has gone just 1-1-1 over his past three scraps.

Grant, meanwhile, has been quietly making his way up the 155-pound totem pole. The 28-year-old will be riding a four-fight winning streak into the shootout.

The event takes place May 25th inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. A heavyweight title tilt between champ Cain Velasquez and Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva headlines the Memorial Day weekend event.

Here is the card’s current roster:

Stephen Thompson vs. Amir Sadollah

KJ Noons vs. Donald Cerrone

TJ Grant vs. Gray Maynard

Ryan Bader vs Glover Teixeira

Junior dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem

Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva vs. Cain Velasquez (UFC heavyweight champion)
