"I always get worried about disrupting continuity. I seem to get blamed for that a lot." ―Dave Filoni

Ah ok,he became a cyborg just only to be a jedi ? I'm shocked

That's so weird. The story with the shuttle and the proposal of San Hill is largely better and coherent.

"Desperate to help his people, Grievous took a job as an enforcer with the InterGalactic Banking Clan. However, after learning that the Huk had attacked Kalee, he headed home to gain vengeance. After consulting with his ally, Confederate Head of State Count Dooku, IGBC Chairman San Hill arranged for a bomb to be placed on Grievous's shuttle, Martyr. The Kaleesh was critically injured, but lived, and Hill arranged for the final stage of his plan. Grievous was reconstructed as a cyborg and was presented to Dooku as a potential weapon to be used in the upcoming war that the count had planned against the Republic."-wookiepedia

Not sure why you put this part of his history up but as this article says. That is in fact the story that has been established in previous EU works and Dave Filoni argued to preserve. George Lucas wanted to change his background to be he volunteered for the cyborg body because he wanted to become a jedi but was unable to because he was not force sensitive

Description

In most of my research I have found the exact opposite of what many of you think. Dave Filoni is actual the guy who tries to protect continuity with EU. He is not to blame for inconsistencies. Here is some info from LA

According to the series creators, continuity with the other Expanded Universe works is being taken very seriously by the series' creators, with Dave Filoni being well-versed in the Expanded Universe. However, Lucas had the right to make slight adjustments for the sake of the story. Additionally, he was consulted directly when dealing with the major characters. According to a November 2006 Internet post by Randy Stradley, editor and author of Dark Horse Comics, he has met with Lucas Animation to discuss integrating the show with the Clone Wars comics. However, the feature film and TV series introduced a number of continuity inconsistencies, many of which directly contradict previously published sources and require retcons and major shifts in the previously established Clone Wars timeline, which are yet to be determined by the Keeper of the Holocron. Leland Chee has indicated that they will wait until the series is largely completed before issuing "a revamped timeline."

Here is a bit of description on Grievious' backstory which also shows Filoni sticking up for EU

In the episode "Lair of Grievous," Grievous says that he chose to have himself modified. Dave Filoni, supervising director of the series, says that George Lucas had his own ideas about Grievous's backstory, and that Grievous wanted to become a Jedi, but was unable to because he was not Force-sensitive. However, Filoni has stated that he does not wish to eliminate the shuttle crash story, because he respects the Expanded Universe. Thus, it is left somewhat ambiguous, as it could be interpreted that Grievous simply chose to accept San Hill's offer to become a cyborg rather than die, or that he had chosen to undergo surgery that would give him abilities like those of the Jedi when he wa
