If Kendall Grove was thinking his neck was off the chopping block with his win over Evan Tanner last year, he thought wrong:
Grove who was the middleweight winner of season three of The Ultimate Fighter is 1-2 in his last three fights. He won a split decision over the late Evan Tanner last June and suffered consecutive first round knockouts to Patrick Cote and Jorge Rivera. He will fight Canadian Jason Day this coming Saturday at UFC 96 in Ohio.
White who is never at a loss for words went on record saying, “If Kendall loses this fight, he could be the first ever TUF winner that’s no longer in the UFC.”
Is Dana White forgetting Travis Lutter, or is this just his ploy to destroy all evidence that Lutter was ever a TUF winner? I hear if you buy season 4 on DVD, it has a totally different ending now. Lutter kicks the window out of a limo and gets kicked off the show. And then they just pasted the Patrick Cote / Anderson Silva fight into UFC 67. Well played, Dana. Well played.
