How can it be a huge step back for Grant when he hasn't even fought? I don't know if Grant is healthy or how the timing will work out but if this is a sport then Grant should fight for the title in his next bout.

Back in reality though I have nothing against Grant/Bendo as this was the fight that was supposed to happen in the first place.

just remember, Pettis was supposed to fight the winner of Edgar/Maynard II to unify the WEC/UFC lightweight titles.... and then E/M III happened, then Pettis lost to clay guida.

these things have a way of working themselves out in the end.

Obviously we all know Dana will do everything in his power to not give Grant a title shot considering Grant's an unknown.

Coming from the Cain fan that joined days before his first title shot. You should add some more green, red, and white to your avy hombre

I don't an think injury should rob someone, especially as impressive as Grant, of a titleshot. We've seen it happen before (Evans, Hendo), and it wouldn't surprise me if it happened again.

I'm sorry Gil beat a fringe top ten guy, had his back taken mulitple times, got rocked badly and clearly showed signs of slowing down, yet he jumps a guy who has been demolishing people and was already supposed to have his title shot? Oh and Gil showd a severely lacked defense against something the champ does extemely well.

That'd be like giving Dan Hardy a title shot for beating Mike Swi...... nevermind.

This is a fast pace industry. Unfortunately for Grant, he's in a stacked division that can't sit around and wait for him to feel better.

The division is in a very different place than when he first earned his title shot. It's not fair to make the guys who are currently fighting sit back and wait for a guy who isn't.

I have no issue with Grant reaffirming his position. If he belongs, he will jump right back up there.

Love how people find something to complain about no matter what.

Grant isn't a big name. No one knows who he is. The small % that learned who he was has now forgotten what he has done.

You get hurt, you lose your turn many times. This ain't nothing new. Love how people act like this has never happened before.
