“It’s definitely difficult. The whole year’s been difficult. Being a professional fighter, you need to be at another level and I’m optimistic going forward that I’ll get better.”

“I could fight tomorrow – I just know it wouldn’t be good for my long-term health. Physically, I can do everything I need to, it’s just my brain. I want to make sure that’s OK, because it’s a lot more important than the other stuff. I know I can fight. I just want to be smart about it.”


“There’s no timetable [for a return to action]. I can work out at high intensity, I just don’t spar and stuff like that. We’ll see what happens. I’m just doing what I can and not getting too far away from the sport. Still somehow stay involved in it, watch it and keep my body in good shape. That’s really all I can do.”

In a recent interview with MMAJunkie.com, top UFC lightweight contender T.J. Grant discussed his return from injury and his hesitation to get hit again.

Can you blame him?
