More often that not, UFC president Dana White refuses to confirm future bouts during post-fight press conferences.

Though another event may be in the books, White tends to state he has more pressing matters than to pair up guys who only just fought moments earlier. That doesn't stop reporters from asking -- it's the name of the game, after all -- but White usually meets journalists with his trademark response: "I don't know. We'll see."

So perhaps it's noteworthy that following UFC 160 on Saturday, White confirmed two upcoming title fights.

Firstly, Cole Harbour, N.S., native T.J. Grant is now set to challenge lightweight champ Benson (Smooth) Henderson later this year, making him only the sixth Canadian fighter to compete for a UFC title belt. Grant also netted Knockout of the Night honours for his stunning first-round destruction of Gray Maynard.
