    Default griffin vs shogun 2 @ ufc 134 in rio

    http://mmajunkie.com/news/23259/forr...-in-august.mma

    A pair of former UFC light heavyweight champions will meet in Brazil, as Forrest Griffin (18-6 MMA, 9-4 UFC) and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua (19-5 MMA, 3-3 UFC) have agreed to fight in August.

    Griffin and Rua meet on the main card of the previously announced "UFC: Rio" event, which is expected to serve as UFC 134 and takes place Aug. 27 at HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

    MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has confirmed the booking, which was first reported by Brazilian-based outlets Tatame.com and GracieMag.com.

    It was Griffin, of course, who welcomed Rua to the UFC in September 2007. Griffin scored an upset win over the former PRIDE champion with a third-round submission win at "UFC 76: Knockout." Rua would undergo knee surgery following the loss and remained sidelined for 16 months.

    Rua bounced back with three wins in his next four outings, including a highly controversial decision loss to Lyoto Machida. Along the way, Rua picked up the UFC's 205-pound title, which he relinquished in March to fast-rising superstar Jon Jones.

    Meanwhile, Griffin parlayed his win over Rua into a title shot against then-champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Griffin outpointed Jackson over 25 minutes and claimed the UFC title, which he subsequently lost to Rashad Evans at UFC 92. Griffin has compiled a 3-2 octagon record since his win over Rua.

    Cool, good fight. I hope Shogun is in peak condition for this one... his hot 'n' cold performances have been a big disappointment (for me anyway!)
    The mind of the believer stagnates. It fails to grow outward into an unlimited, infinite universe.

    I hope Shogun smashes the fuck out Griffin. No problem with Griffin, but I just think Shogun is far superior (when fit).
