Two former UFC Light Heavyweight Champions will meet at UFC 134 when Forrest Griffin and Shogun Rua meet in the Octagon for a second time in Brazil next weekend.
Griffin holds a win over Rua in their first fight at UFC 76, Rua_s UFC debut, and Griffin talked about the differences between then and now while on the UFC 134 conference call yesterday.
"Guys maybe at their core don_t change, but he looks a lot different. That was his first fight in the UFC. That was his first fight in the cage. That was his first fight without kicks on the ground. So, it_s different." Griffin said.
"I think it_s still a reasonably good fight for me. You look around at 205 (pounds) – find me the easy fight. There_s no easy fights in the top-10 guys. It doesn_t really matter."
