Davey Grant comes to his second home to fight in the UK’s biggest MMA event of 2016 with UFC 204 in the Durham born mixed martial artists second home Manchester where he has transformed himself into the efficient and exciting fighter he is today at the famous SBG Manchester Gym under the expert tutorship of veteran coach Karl Tanswell.
Like many of todays top fighters including Team Mate Saul Rogers Davey first came to the worlds attention on The Ultimate Fighter 18 “Rousey versus Tate” making it to the finale but losing to a RNC submission to Chris Holdsworth however Davey would be the first to tell you he’s now a totally different fighter to the man defeated in the TUF finale of November 2013.
After some trouble with injury Davey moved his camp over to Manchester from his North East English roots to train at the famous SBG Camp where he has grown in stature and skill alongside team mates such as Saul Rogers, Matt Inman and Martin Stapleton.
His technical and solid demolition of the talented submission fighter Marlon Vera at UFC Fight Night 84 showed how far he’d progressed and tonight he looks to show that the baby faced amiable British fighter has come of age.
Davey Chooses REVGEAR equipment like many younger fighters needing a professional athletes brand which cares more about its function than its flash….. Cometh the Hour; Cometh the Man
