Fantasy AnalysisGraves has been accused of misdemeanor battery charges, but exact details of the situation are still unclear. Sergio Morales will be in need of another opponent heading into Nov. 19.
Fantasy AnalysisGraves is unbeaten in professional MMA fights so far, and fought to a majority draw in his last UFC fight against Bojan Velickovic in July. The young welterweight will look to continue his streak against Moraes, who is adept at submission finishes.
Fantasy AnalysisThis was the "co-main event" from The Ultimate Fighter season. Graves won this fight based on the strength of six takedowns. He was in total control for the first two rounds before slipping a bit in the final round. Still, it was an impressive performance and it keeps Graves undefeated. American Top Team got the last laugh in this bout.
