Shoulder injury forces Forrest Griffin out of UFC 114

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin has been forced to withdraw from his UFC 114 bout with Antonio Rogerio Nogueira due to a shoulder injury.

The news of Griffins injury comes courtesy of a recent report from celebrity news website TMZ.

The match-up was set to co-headline UFC 114 on May 29 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. The main event on the card will still feature the highly anticipated light heavyweight showdown between “The Ultimate Fighter 10” rival coaches Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans.

Griffin (17-6-0) last graced the octagon at UFC 106, earning a revenge split decision victory over Tito Ortiz.

Nogueira (18-3-0), the twin brother of MMA legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, will likely still appear on the UFC 114 card, although a replacement has yet to be named.

The extent of Griffins injury is unknown.
