It now official! Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and Forrest Griffin, another former UFC titleholder, will meet at UFC: Rio, on Aug. 27 in Rio de Janeiro.
Following his loss to defend his UFC light heavyweight title to Jon Jones, Mauricio Shogun Rua will face Forrest Griffin at UFC Rio for a rebound. He was considered the no. 1 light heavyweight fighter in the world before losing his title at UFC 128 last month. But prior to that, it was Forrest Griffin who welcomed him in the sports back in 2007.
Though Forrest Griffin was the underdog during UFC 76, he was able to upset Mauricio Shogun Rua via submission. That victory led him to a title fight against Quinton Rampage Jackson at UFC 86, where he won via unanimous decision. Since then he was 2-2, including a loss to Rashad Evans.
The UFC Rio will take place on August 27 at Rio de Janiero. Let your bets be known by leaving a comment.View Article Source »
