Lightweight champion Benson Henderson will defend his title against T.J. Grant on Aug. 31 at UFC 164 in Milwaukee, promotion officials announced Tuesday night.
Henderson (19-2) will be making his fourth title defense after beating Frankie Edgar in February 2012. In his most recent defense, on April 20, Henderson needed a split decision to hold off former Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez.
Grant earned a shot at the 155-pound champion with a first-round knockout of Gray Maynard on May 25 at UFC 160 in Las Vegas. The former welterweight is 5-0 as a lightweight and 21-5.
