Griffin-Noguiera Likely For UFC 114, Not UFC 113

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira

Looks like the big light heavyweight match between Forrest Griffin and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira is going to take place at UFC 114, not UFC 113 as initially believed.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to Griffin that the contest, which was originally believed to be taking place at UFC 113 in Montreal on May 8, is actually targeted for UFC 114 in Las Vegas on May 29.

Bout agreements for the matchup, which is likely for a co-main event slot, are expected to be finalized shortly.

It was not immediately clear whether the May 29 booking was a result of a change in plans for the two fighters or whether the UFC had always intended the fight for the Las Vegas show.

Guess that means Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley are going to get that co-main event slot under Lyoto Machida and Shogun Rua after all.
