During the third installment of The Ultimate Fighter reality show, Kendall Grove proved he would be a force to be reckoned with for a long time in the UFC’s middleweight division.
Since the show ended, he won the six-figure contract by besting Ed Herman in the finals in a phenomenal fight and has defeated both Chris Price and Alan Belcher.
Now Kendall Grove is primed to take on Canadian slugger Patrick Cote at UFC 74 and the Hawaiian fighter will join Damon & Jeff on MMAWeekly Radio tonight at 9pm EST/6pm PST.
Kendall has been training exclusively at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas while he still keeps close ties with his former coach from The Ultimate Fighter, Tito Ortiz.
Listen to what Kendall has to say about the fight with Cote and the middleweight division in the UFC.
Also on the show will be Jorge Gurgel, who just announced yesterday that he would be facing Alaskan Doug Evans in his next bout in his adopted hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio at UFC 77.
Gurgel suffered a broken jaw in his last fight, a fight that earned him fight of the night honors in a win over Diego Sariava, and he is set to get back in the Octagon to take on Evans in a lightweight showdown.
Tune in tonight at 9pm EST/6pm PST to hear both Kendall Grove and Jorge Gurgel live on MMAWeeklyRadio.com. Plus remember, its Friday, which means another installment of the Fireside Chat with co-host Jeff Cain.
