Gray Maynard VS TJ Grant Winner to face Benson next.

Gray Maynard VS TJ Grant Winner to face Benson next.

Benson Henderson did it again he has now sucessfully defended his belt 3 times now as the  UFC lightweight champion.  We immediately found out how he will know his next challenger come May.

UFC president Dana White made it known during the post-fight press conference that the winner of Gray Maynard-TJ Grant at UFC 160 will receive the next shot. “Smooth.”

Maynard, was a former contender to the belt when it was held by Frankie Edgar, however has not fought since last summer. He defeated Clay Guida, but then suffered a knee injury in training.  Grant, has won four straight. He finished Matt Wiman this past January.

But really, I was a little shocked at this pairing. Is anyone else? What are your feelings on this upcoming match up.
