It did! Even without a groove in the Ergon grips it fit nicely and the location the cable enters/exits the Microshift shifter was perfect. I appreciate you texting me through the shifter swap Joe. For those thinking of reusing a shifter cable, good luck. I got it all together with a new cable and then realized there was no barrel adjuster (I should have noticed, I know). So, I pulled that new cable out to install an inline one, intending to reuse it, but it frayed. So, off to the local bike shop for another cable. Yes, I bought an extra one.
