5thRound friend Kendall “Da Spyder” Grove’s next fight is going to be on June 21st against Evan Tanner at The Ultimate Fighter 7 Finale. Both Grove and Tanner are looking to bounce back from disappointing losses, Grove has actually lost his last two. Grove was riding a four-fight win streak in the UFC until he ran into both Patrick Cote at UFC 74 and Jorge Rivera at UFC 81.
Tanner on the other hand, came back after nearly a 2 year hiatus from the Octagon. Unfortunately Yushin Okami’s knee didn’t welcome Tanner back too kindly as he took out Tanner at UFC 82.
This is a pivotal fight for both fighters, but it has to be even bigger for “Da Spyder” as a third loss in a row would definitely put him in a precarious position within the UFC. Of all the champions from “The Ultimate Fighter” reality show, Grove has struggled the most to cash-in on the promise that he had on the show.
The announcement of Grove’s next fight was actually reported via his website at DaSpyder.com.
