  • Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Forrest Griffin in works for UFC 113 in Montreal

    A light-heavyweight match-up between former UFC lightweight champion Forrest Griffin (17-6 MMA, 8-4 UFC) and recent Brazilian import Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (18-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC), otherwise known as "Lil Nog," is in the works for the recently rescheduled UFC 113 event in Montreal.

    The fight was first reported Tuesday by Tatame.com and subsequently confirmed to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) by sources close to the situation.

    Verbal agreements are in place, and contracts are expected to be finalized shortly.

    Griffin shrugged off past demons by reversing a split-decision loss against former light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz this past November at UFC 106. Three months prior, Griffin fell prey to the devastating hands of middleweight champion Anderson Silva at UFC 101 and ran from the arena following a knockout loss.

    After besting Quinton Jackson at UFC 86 for the 205-pound belt, Griffin failed to defend his title at UFC 92 when Rashad Evans stopped him with strikes in the third round.

    Still, Griffin remains one of the UFC's most popular fighters with notable wins over Jackson and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua. He recently capitalized on his celebrity with the New York Times bestselling book, "Got Fight?"

    Nogueira made his UFC debut on the undercard of Griffin's most recent win and stopped the highly touted prospect Luiz Cane in a "Knockout of the Night" performance.

    The twin brother of former PRIDE and UFC champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Rogerio Nogueira was acquired by the UFC following the collapse of Affliction Entertainment this past August. He entered the octagon on a five-fight win streak and carries notable wins over Dan Henderson, Alistair Overeem, and Kazushi Sakuraba, among others.

    The Nogueira brothers split time between training facilities in Rio de Janeiro and Los Angeles.

    UFC 113 was originally slated for May 1 but was moved to May 8 when UFC president Dana White elected to sidestep a possible pay-per-view showdown with boxing's potential Floyd Mayweather vs. Shane Mosley superfight. UFC 113 is the promotion's third trip to Montreal after two prior sellouts at the 21,000-seat Bell Centre.

    Griffin vs. Nogueira is expected for the main card of UFC 113. A light heavyweight rematch between champion Lyoto Machida and Rua is expected to headline the Canadian event.

    Wow this card just got 10 times better, some serious slug fests will on this card. This looks like one of those cards that not only looks good on paper but theres no doubt on my mind that it will deliver

        Oh, ok. I was hoping it didn't get cancelled. Good news.

        This was going to be an insane card with that fight on it, too. Still a good card, though.

        I got Shogun, Kos and Rog Nog winning these. Gonna be some good fights, though.

            Stout and Stephens is going to be good. 2 powerful punchers and 2 tough motha fuckers. I like Jeremy Stephens... it'll be a good fight.

            I got Cote beating Belcher, though. Picking Hendricks and Davis to win, as well. Don't really care about Kimbo Vs Mitrione.

                  ^ Not a huge fan of FOrrest but I do think he puts on exciting fights. But I have no doubts Lil Nog's got this. Nog is a beast.

                      ^ His stand up has improved a lot. The fight that really impressed me was the one vs Rashad. He was winning that fight til the 3rd round.

                        ya his stand up is pretty good, his leg kicks are the best thing he has imo....

                        he just doesnt have any power, he had a huge should injury in the past i forget what exactly i guess its the reason he doesnt have a ton of power in his hands. Because i mean he is a big strong guy

                          ^ Yeah it's odd that such a big guy doesn't have much power. If I recall correctly he actually had his arm broken in a fight. Not sure it was the shoulder (or maybe it was both *shrugs*).

                            i think it was his forearm, where there is an odd bump .. but i think he got his arm broken and beat the guy with his other one apparently ..

                            i like forest alot, like people say he's humble and will fight anyone ..
