Gary WhittakerCorrespondent IJanuary 23, 2009

According to a report from MM-eh's Andy Cotterill on Sherdog.com, TKO and PFP veteran TJ Grant will be making his UFC debut on April 18 at UFC 97.

According to the article, Grant was offered a four-fight deal that will see him fight Ryo Chonan, a long-time veteran with 24 pro fights in such promotions as Pride and the UFC.

TJ Grant is a ground specialist who has been going to Thailand in order to improve his striking so that he can become a world class fighter. For Chonan, loser in two of his last three fights in the UFC, he will no doubt be fighting to stay with the premier MMA organisation in the world.
