The fight was first reported yesterday by mmajunkie.com that both men had agreed to the fight. Now it has now been signed and confirmed by Grant’s manager Scott Maclean. Grant is coming off a loss at UFC 113 in Montreal by majority decision to Johny Hendricks.

Grant is 2-2 in the Zuffa based organization with wins over Ryo Chonan and Kevin Burns.

Paulino is coming off a loss in his UFC debut against Mike Pierce at UFC on Verses One back in March. The Alaska born fighter has a record of 17-3 with wins over UFC veterans like Terry Martin.

Paulino was supposed to fight last weekend at UFC 116 against Daniel Roberts but had to withdrew due to injury and was replaced by Forrest Petz, a fighter Grant beat two years ago.
