T.J. Grant withdraws from second Lightweight title fight

T.J. Grant will not challenge newly UFC Lightweight champion Anthony Pettis instead, hard hitter  Josh Thomson will step up to the mark  which will take place at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on Dec. 14, 2013.

In recent announcement:

"The main event for UFC Fight Night on FOX December 14 has been verbally agreed to as UFC lightweight world champion Anthony "Showtime" Pettis will defend his title against number-five ranked contender Josh "The Punk" Thomson. Pettis recently reclaimed the belt from Benson Henderson, from whom he'd won the WEC lightweight title in 2010, via a first-round armbar that earned Submission of the Night honors. Thomson most recently earned a Knockout of the Night bonus for his highlight-reel finish of Nate Diaz. Neither Henderson nor Diaz had previously been stopped in their UFC careers."
