Grant's medical issues aren't resolved...
T.J. Grant is out of a fight with Anthony Pettis at UFC on FOX 9. Grant revealed on Twitter that his medical issues have yet to be resolved; he suffered a concussion in training and will not be able to fight Pettis at the show.
Grant revealed the news on Twitter, posting:
Hey people Quick update. Unfortunately I won't be fighting Pettis on dec 14. I am still not yet 100% n can't commit to fight. UFC is going with someone else instead. It sucks but it is the best for both myself and the UFC.
Please don't worry. Ill be back and if I gotta fight someone else to get back to where I wanna be then that's what I'm gonna do. I'm not bitter. Thanks.
Soon after, the UFC announced that Pettis will defend the lightweight title against Josh Thomson at the show. It will take place on December 14th in Sacramento, California with the main card airing on FOX.
