Forrest Griffin vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira In The Works for UFC 113

Forrest GriffinA light heavyweight matchup between former champion Forrest Griffin and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, first reported earlier this month, is likely to take place at UFC 113 on May 8 in Montreal, Canada, according to Nogueira, who confirmed to Tatame on Tuesday that the fight is in the works for the event but not yet finalized.

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, and returns to the Octagon after a broken ankle forced him to withdraw from a February bout against Brandon Vera.
