Kendall Grove returns at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi, opponent named soon | MMAjunkie.com
Fresh off an impressive submission victory over Jake Rosholt at UFC 106, middleweight Kendall Grove (11-6, 6-3 UFC) returns to action at UFC 112 on April 10 in Abu Dhabi. |
Grove made the announcement Monday on his official Twitter account but did not disclose his opponent for the event.
A source close to the event, though, told MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com) an official UFC announcement of Grove's opponent could come as early as today.
However, the UFC hasn't yet officially announced the UFC 112 event, which would be the UFC's first in the United Arab Emirates.
UFC 112 is expected to feature a headlining bout between longtime Gracie statesman and UFC newcomer Renzo Gracie and nine-time UFC welterweight champion Matt Hughes.
Grove, who recently opened a fight school in his native Maui, Hawaii, got back on track with the triangle submission victory over Rosholt. The victory followed a decision loss to Ricardo Almeida at UFC 101.
Since winning the third season of "The Ultimate Fighter," Grove has seen ups and downs in his UFC career, but he began to refocus after moving from Las Vegas back to Hawaii. In addition to training at his facility, he frequently makes the short trek to Hilo to train with lightweight champion B.J. Pennís team.
In Abu Dhabi, Grove looks to make it his third string of back-to-back octagon victories.
There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.
