Mauricio Rua vs Forrest Griffin

September 18, 2007

Word has it that Forrest Griffin specifically requested this fight against Mauricio Rua thats taking place on September 22, 2007.

Griffin wants to fight Rua because he knows Rua’s the best. Rua will be making his UFC debut this Saturday after making the transfer from Pride. Rua is an extremely aggressive fighter with an excellent background in Muay Thai and Jui-Jitsu. He’s beaten some of Prides finest like Quinton Jackson, Richardo Arona and Rogerio Minotoro Nogueira.

Griffin’s a fighter that’s well rounded with good grappling skills. His two biggest losses to date have been against guys that are tough and aggresive, guys like Tito Ortiz and Keith Jardine. His best fight that went the distance was against Stephan Bonner, in which both fighters went toe to toe the whole fight making for one of the best fights to date. He’s got the strength and conditioning to go the distance, but Rua brings to much to the table. Rua has knocked out some massive guys in Pride that don’t even come close to Griffin. Maricio Rua will walk away from this fight victorious.
