    Who knows. I'd like to think so but no idea, unfortunately.

    I hope not. Brain trauma is no joke.

    For his sake, no. People constantly underestimate concussions, he's done. If he's smart

    TJ Grant is actually working in the oil rings of Alberta with a friend of mine.

    TJ Grant's uncle is the team leader on the rig and TJ works on it.

    They make insane money, but it's extremely hard work..

    First off... if he's out in bum fuck Alberta working on an oil rig, I highly doubt he's coming back, and if he does, I doubt he's a serious contender again... it's a huge life style change..


    Secondly, I can't believe some guy who was supposed to fight for the title, and was a top notch fighter, is forced to work a job like on an oil rig.. if you want to talk about fighter pay, there it is. A guy who was going to fight for the title, is working quite possibly the dirtiest, most difficult, longest hour job Canada has to offer.

    I was going to make a thread about TJ working on the rigs a few weeks ago but forgot, so there it is.

    TJ Grant is actually working in the circus in Ontario with a friend of mine.

    TJ Grant's uncle is the owner of the circus and TJ works on it.

    They make little money, and it's extremely hard work..

    First off... if he's out in bum fuck Ontario working on a circus, I highly doubt he's coming back, and if he does, I doubt he's a serious contender again... it's a huge life style change..

    Hmm, I don't know who to believe.

    Is Grant on an oil rig or a circus performer...? Two credible reports.

    First: Canada does not have oil rigs, they have oil refineries in the Alberta Oil Sands.

    Second: While it is a dirty job with long hours its is the easiest job ever.

    I know its the easiest job ever because I have been doing it for the last 10 years. The lifestyle change is not huge especially when you are not training anyway. Its quick easy money.

    I don't know who is giving you information on the job but they are extremely exaggerating it.

    Also, pretty sure TJ is still in Nova Scotia recovering. I don't believe he is working there. I would need to see pictures or a source that he is. I just don't believe it.

    I am a HUGE TJ fan. Hope he comes back soon.

    Nothing much, just sitting here at my home next to Sidney Crosbys concussion specialist. It's actually a circus refinery and I had green eggs and ham.

    Dude might be TJ Grant!!1

    Pick his brain about what it takes to be a LW contender or what it's like working at a circus refinery.

    Heard the exact same info recently from a family friend of the Grants. Positive this is accurate information. Sadly he is done.
