Grove vs. Maia Set For The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale


MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer

Kendall “Da Spyder” Grove (12-7-0-1) took to his twitter account Tuesday to post word on his next bout. It seems the TUF Season 3 victor will venture back into the cage at The Ultimate Fighter 12 Finale. His opponent is none other than perennial contender, and recognized Jiu Jitsu ace Demian Maia (13-2).

Grove last competed at UFC 116: Lesnar VS. Carwin where he successfully rebounded from his defeat to Mark Munoz (at UFC 112: Invincible) with a split decision victory over power puncher Goran Reljic. Demian Maia just competed at UFC 118: Edgar VS. Penn 2, where he earned a unanimous decision nod over the durable Mario Miranda.

The season 12 Finale will take place at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada on December 4th.
