    Concussion denies Canadian T.J. Grant a UFC title shot

    Concussion denies Canadian T.J. Grant a UFC title shot

    A concussion has denied Canadian lightweight T.J. Grant a shot at the UFC title for a second time.

    The 29-year-old from Cole Harbour, N.S., knocked out veteran Gray (The Bully) Maynard at UFC 160 in May to earn a title shot against Benson (Smooth) Henderson.

    But that opportunity went instead to former WEC champion Anthony (Showtime) Pettis when a concussion sustained in training sidelined the Canadian. Pettis made the most of his chance, submitting Henderson in August to win the 155-pound crown.

    The UFC said Grant would get first crack at Pettis, with a televised card Dec. 14 in Sacramento the likely stage.

    Grant, however, explained in a series of tweets that he is still injured.

    Hope he recovers quickly!

    Unfortunate setback. I've been keeping tabs on this guy as well. I hope he gets back in the action soon.
