Engine rebuild: Grease or no grease outside of main bearings?

When installing the main bearings, is it ok to put a little grease on the outside of the main bearings?

I will use a press and freeze the bearings, but to ensure they install nicely I'm wondering if a dab of grease is ok, or if it may cause the bearing to spin in the case?

They should go in without anything

If anything I would use what ever oil you are using in gearbox
