Whilst the accolade of featherweight champion isn’t one Grimshaw will shirk, he admits that it is the challenge that presents itself that means the most.
“Dave Lee is a huge name and an extremely credible opponent,” he stated. “I hope he’s taking me as seriously as I’m taking him!”
Assessing his opponent’s skill set, Ash also offered how he believes this will see the fight play out.
“I know Dave is very good on the ground. He’s a BJJ brown belt. He’s solid. I think it’s going to be old-school, like me wanting to keep it standing and him wanting to take it down.”
