Default Forrest Vs Nogueria for 113

WAR FORREST!

The card for the UFC's return to Montreal just got another major addition. Light heavyweights Forrest Griffin and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira have agreed to meet at the May 8 event in a match-up between two top ranked 205-pounders.

The bout was initially reported by Tatame.com. Independent sources confirmed the bout to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday.

Nogueira (18-3) made a big impact in his UFC debut, knocking out fellow Brazilian Luis Cane with strikes in under two minutes back in November 2009.

The former Pride competitor has won his last six fights in a row, and is looking to get into title contention when he faces Griffin in May.

Following a disappointing performance in his August 2009 fight against Anderson Silva, Griffin (17-6) returned to form, earning a split decision win over old foe Tito Ortiz in November.

A mainstay of Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, Griffin is 3-2 in his last five fights with his only other loss coming being a TKO to former light heavyweight champion Rashad Evans in late 2008.

The fight between Nogueira and Griffin will be one of the headline fights at UFC 113 to go along with the light heavyvweight title rematch between Lyoto Machida and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, as well as a welterweight showdown pitting Paul Daley against Josh Koscheck.

I agree this is a REAL tough test for Griffin. I hope he rises to the occassion but Lil' Nog is a beast.

Really bad style matchup for Forrest... Lil Nog is basically his brother without all the milage with better pro boxer level boxing with almost as good jitz.. Forrest has risen to the occasion before in the shogun and Rampage fights though!!!

Little Nog by decision
