According to Gracie Magazine, sources close to the UFC have confirmed that a fight between former champions Shogun Rua and Forrest Griffin should be happening at UFC Rio on Aug. 27.

This would be their second face-off as the two fough in Sept. of 07′ in which Griffin was able to pull off the rear-naked choke on Rua in the third.

Griffin will be coming off a win over Rich Franklin at UFC 126, well Rua will be trying to rebound from a title loss and destruction at the hands of Jon Jones at UFC 128.

As the Rio card continues to shape, we are seeing a trend of ‘revenge for the Brazilians’ matches as the headline is Anderson Silva vs Yushin Okami as Okami holds the last victory over Silva by disqualification.
