Grant lost to Daniel Rodriguez via TKO (punches) at 2:44 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Add Grant to the growing list of fighters on this card who will be kicking himself following his defeat. Grant appeared well on his way to a stoppage victory after scoring a huge knockdown in the early going after Rodriguez recklessly rushed in on a combination attempt. Ultimately, he was unable to close the deal, and Rodriguez connected with one big shot of his own. Grant was unable to survive the flurry that followed. Grant falls to 2-2 since earning his UFC contract following a knockout victory on Dana White's Contender Series back in June 2018.

New opponent on short notice
WelterweightUFC
August 19, 2020
Grant will now face Calen Born at UFC on ESPN 15 on Saturday in Las Vegas, UFC.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Grant was scheduled to face Jared Gooden before he pulled out late with an undisclosed injury. Born will be making his debut with the promotion. Born is 7-1 as a pro and has competed under the LFA banner, but his most recent win was with Shamrock FC. Look for the more experienced Grant to enter as a big betting favorite, which should lead to a higher draft percentage in daily formats as his price will remain unchanged.
