5 Reasons TJ Grant Could Defeat Benson Henderson at UFC 164
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

So it turns out that you don't need to win any popularity contests, carry a weighty reputation or own a Ph.D in smack talk to garner a title shot in the UFC. Keeping your head down and filling up the win column can still get it done.

Case in point: TJ Grant. 

By all accounts, the Canadian is a fighter of middling renown. Yet, riding an impressive five-fight win streak, he is poised to battle Benson Henderson for the lightweight crown at UFC 164.

Grant will enter the bout as a betting underdog, but not one who should be counted out. In fact, there are a good many reasons to believe in the 29-year-old.

I believe, and I've decided to subject you to five slides' worth of opinion stating why. 

Enjoy.
