    Based on the information that we are given, somethings don’t add up. If we assume that all the only problem that grant got was a concussion; I don’t see why he would pull out of a fight that is still seven weeks away? I know concussions should not be taken lightly but title fight opportunities don’t come by all the time. If Grant do not have any symptoms (nausea, blurry vision, etc…), I would think a fighter would not want to with draw from a title fight over precautionary reasons, so either Grant’s injury is pretty serious or there is some shenanigans going on between him and the higher ups of the UFC.

    What gives it away is that he said he did it doing bjj!!!?? For Christ’s sake bjj is the softest thing in mma. It’s just dudes grabbing onto each other and rolling around like they are mud wrestling. yep, TJ’s getting a bigger PPV cut on his next fight…

    You guys are idiots (it goes without saying) bjj is can be brutal. If Grants pulling out of the fight with a concussion it’s probably more serious than you think. Plus the man wants a long career w out getting dementia when he’s 40. As mediocre fans, you both should try to relate to the fighters more to give you a better understanding of the sport. It’s can be dangerous

      Call people idiots without carefully reading their post show that you are the idiot.

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        Hey Bro – your comments are definitely intelligent and thoughtful no idiocy there. This tool probably meant me more so since I was giving a jab to bjj and you weren’t. Sorry, the intelligence level can be way below average on here at times.

      • Rain man says:

        Lol ok. I carefully read both of your replies.. And you are still idiots. All you did was use the exact same word I used to insult you as a comeback.. Lol good one! You really are over flowing with intelligence..
