Default Shogun vs Forrest Griffin

Shogun is now fighting Forrest Griffin at UFC 76, not Machida. Poor Forrest.

WTF?

UFC 76 has gone from being one of the best cards in ufc history to one of the least interesting.

Liddell vs Jardine
Shogun vs Forrest

I suppose this is good buisness as its putting Shogun against a popular and well known name but as a fan of MMA I would liked to have seen him against a better opponent.

Sucks.

Liddel vs Jardine, nor this bout, we're ever confirmed. It could very well be possible that we will see Liddel vs Machida, which would be incredibly interesting to me. And come on, Shogun vs Forrest will be a barn burner.

That sucks. I was really interested in seeing Machida vs Shogun.

If Machida is out, then they should make it Liddell vs Shogun, and Forrest vs Jardine II.

Marketing nightmare.
UFC wants to build up Shogun as a future money maker and want their poster boy (chuck) to win big to have another match for the title.

putting Shogun vs Liddell would be a lose lose situation for the UFC whoever won that fight.

That sucks, although it will make for a better highlight reel.

I hope it's true. It's a perfect fight for Shogun, really. He can't lose, and he will topple the "great" Forrest. TUF fans will go, "Ooooh, Shogun is awesome because he beat Forrest, who won that epic war with the American Pyscho! Yeah!"

I'm glad Forrest is getting fed to the sharks. I've had enough of him.

Agreed. But both fighters say they have been offered this fight and will accept, so I feel safe in specualting on how sweet it will to see Shogun land a flying punch down through Forrest's gaurd and kill him.

No it wont.It will be a one sided beat down.Shogun is arguably the best light heavy on the planet.He is a true all rounder.Forrest is a pub drunk/ bar brawler on his best day.Shogun by brutal annhilation.

Shogun is a beast but he'll never fight Silva.
