Griffin has withdrawn from a co-headlining light heavyweight
contest against Antonio
Rogerio Nogueira at UFC
114 on May 29 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
TMZ.com was the first to report that the former UFC light
heavyweight champion has bowed out with a shoulder injury and
Sherdog.com has confirmed it independently. A replacement has not
been announced yet.
Rogerio, the twin brother of UFC heavyweight Antonio
Rodrigo Nogueira, had an impressive Octagon debut at UFC 106
last November in Las Vegas, boxing out a first-round stoppage over
Former 205-pound titleholders Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and
Evans meet in the main event, after their stints as rival
coaches on “The Ultimate Fighter 10” last year.
