rumor for forrest griffin vs lil nog


Recommended Posts

Forrest Griffin and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira are set for a light-heavyweight meeting ?sooner rather than later? in 2010, according to a source close to one of the fighters. Rogerio has had one fight in the UFC thus far, a TKO win at UFC 106.


The source said that a fight with Griffin has been mooted along with several other names for a fight in Nogueira?s near future. He was due to meet Brandon "the truth" Vera at UFC 109 and Griffin?s name was apparently in the frame for his next fight should he beat Vera.


But the Brazilian fighter suffered an injury training for the Vera fight - he sustained a fractured ankle - and will now be sidelined for several months. What opponent he comes back against has not yet been determined, but the winner of Jones-Vera seems a likely option.


Rogerio is smaller than his heavyweight twin Rodrigo and as such is often referred to as Little Nog or Lil? Nog. He was at one point being set to make his UFC debut against Junior Dos Santos, but is said to have been less than keen on the match. He eventually made his debut against Luiz Cane, demolishing him inside two minutes at UFC 106.


(I dont know how strong the source is in the link cause they said he was training for jones im sure it was a classic mix up)
