Perhaps no UFC fighter has flown under the radar longer than T.J. Grant.

The Cole Harbour, N.S., native has competed 10 times inside the octagon, but has yet to fight on a main card. He was originally booked opposite Evan Dunham on the pay-per-view portion of UFC 152 in September, but the bout was bumped down to the prelims to accommodate Jon Jones and Vitor Belfort.

Though Grant has been relegated to undercards during his UFC stint, he's made excellent use of his time.

Since dropping to lightweight in 2011, he has put together a spectacular four-fight win streak.
