This, Grant has waited long enough for his title shot. He actually provides an interesting match up as well. He's a well rounded tough guy with a solid chin. He's looked like a beast since dropping to 155.
He's only been in the division for 2 years, waiting a year won't hurt him. It will only help him establish himself more and gain fans.
Without question should be TJ Grant. Coming off a KO of Gray Maynard, any other fight for him is a step down imo.
Melendez, Henderson, Thomson, and Miller are all ranked ahead of Maynard he has fights at LW.
