Evan Dunham (13-2) thinks a win over TJ Grant (18-5) and one more fight puts him in the championship picture.
"This fight means a lot, as all of the fights do for anyone at 155 [pounds]," said Dunham on MMA Interviews. "It's a mad dash to the top right now, since it's been freed up a little bit. A win over Grant is going to do good things for me and hopefully give me one more good fight before I'm fighting for that title."
Dunham is 5-2 since he debuted for the UFC in 2009. Grant is on a two fight win streak since he dropped to the lightweight division.
Dunham vs. Grant will air on the UFC 152 preliminary card.
