    Forrest Griffin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira


    Former light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin is likely to fight Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in the near future, according to Fighters Only, which reports that the matchup is expected to take place “sooner rather than later”.

    Nogueuria is expected to be able to return in March or April after suffering a broken ankle in December, which forced him to withdraw from a February bout against Brandon Vera.

    After losing his title to Rashad Evans in December 2008 and suffering a first-round knockout to Anderson Silva in August, Griffin (17-6), the winner of The Ultimate Fighter 1, rebounded in November with a split decision win over Tito Ortiz.

    Nogueira (18-3), a PRIDE and Affliction veteran, made his UFC debut in November with a first-round knockout of Luiz Cane, his sixth-straight win.

    Me too. I think Nog is technically more effective at everything and mentally superior as an MMA'ist.

    I second that notion. I like both of these fighters, but I think Forrest's only chance is to stay on his feet and strike, value the leg kicks, and maybe pull off a decision.

    Nogueira by submission.

    This will be quite the stepping stone to Nog. It should be interesting.

    I wonder where a victory could put him as far as getting a shot at the title.

    Lil Nog will end this by the 2nd round imo. Hopefully it could put him in a line for a shot at Shogun (I think he takes the rematch)

    This will not end well for Forrest. Nog has the best technical striking at LHW (better than Machida's, IMO) and is the only fighter to ever really destroy Hendo. Nog KO rd 1 via straight left.

    im a big forrest fan..would love to see him win but i think some of the fighters in the pool lately are just to much for him..Dana may have to use him like Randy and let the hall of famers fight each other

    Yeah little Nog is gonna take this one easy, I just dont see that Forest has anything for him. This should be a quick fight.

    i am more of a griffin fan but i think nog will work him though. but i dont think griffin will go down as easy as the rest of you all think. it should be a good fight and imo a long one.

    Griffin's got this... nog has passed his time, at the same time i think forrest is goin down hill too but forrest is a tough son of a fish and always up for a fight.(u got to remember he fought anderson silva, and he makes everyone look bad) i doubt nog would have looked any better.........
