“I’m not scared to fight anyone,” he said. “If I was healthy and I knew that I could get in shape, I would’ve [tried it.]. It’s a little scary. I wanted to kind of make the best decision for myself.”

“I want to do what’s best for me,” he said. “I want to fight for a long time. I want to live a long time. I want to enjoy my baby girl and all that stuff, so I thought about it a lot and talked to the UFC doctor and all the doctors here. The decision was 100 percent mine.”

“I’m not rooting for anyone,” he said. “Honestly, I don’t really care. I hope they have a good fight, they beat each other up good. I hope the winner doesn’t get injured though, because I want to fight him.”

In a recent interview with ‘The MMA Hour‘, UFC top lightweight contender, TJ Grant discussed his missed title shot opportunity and unfortunate injury that pushed Antony Pettis into a rematch with Benson Henderson.
