LAS VEGAS – Davey Grant hopes to get the job done quickly, but he knows he has a tough adversary ahead.
The Englishman returns to the octagon this Saturday at UFC Fight Night 198. Grant (11-5 MMA, 4-4 UFC) fights Adrian Yanez in a bantamweight bout. Grant is coming off a “Fight of the Night” bout against Marlon Vera, and although he hopes it doesn’t come to war, he expects a similar bout against Yanez.
“My mindset is always expect a war,” Grant told MMA Junkie and other media members. “I always expect a war and anything less is just a bonus. You have to be going in there prepared to get right involved in the nitty gritty of things. So yeah, I expect that big hit, hard war. But if I can knock him out in the first round that would be brilliant.”
