Report: Shogun’s new opponent is Forrest

I did not hear the show first hand, however, it’s believed that Tagg Radio (Taggradio.com) is reporting that Mauricio “Shogun” Rua’s opponent at UFC 76 on Sept. 22 in Anaheim, Calif. has been changed from Lyoto Machida to Forrest Griffin.

The UFC has yet to confirm this match.

I think Machida would have been a tougher fight for Shogun but if the fight has indeed been changed to Forrest, then that’s a much better matchup stylistically.
