Default Possible Couture VS Vera @ UFC 105

One of the more interesting statements in this article is it is claimed that Rashad was approached with this fight with Randy and he turned it down, wonder why? I'd like to know too. I do however like this match up better..

MMAania.com

Former heavyweight and light heavyweight champion, Randy Couture (16-10), could return to the 205-pound division to take on Brandon Vera (11-3) in the main event at UFC 105 from the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England, on Nov. 14, according to The Sun.

The report indicates that UFC sources have confirmed the showdown, which was cobbled together when the lightweight championship match between division kingpin BJ Penn and number one contender Diego Sanchez was booked for UFC 107 on Dec. 12 to compensate for the postponed fight between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Rashad Evans.

In fact, the report indicates that Evans turned down the opportunity to challenge “The Natural,” forcing the promotion to seek “The Truth.”

More on this breaking news shortly.

UFC 105 will feature hometown hero, Michael “The Count” Bisping, in the co-main event opposite Denis Kang, as well as a welterweight battle between Dan Hardy and Dong Hyun “Stun Gun” Kim. It will air on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET on fight night.

Vera has been fighting badly as a light heavyweight so Couture will win.

Doesn't make a whole lot of sense really, other than to give Randy a nice win so he can get some confidence and a W on the sheet.

Vera certainly isnt a legendary fight and if he loses, its gonna end his career surely? This looks like long term strategy to build Randy up for another title shot or a fight with the Spider.

As always: WAR COUTURE! I see Randy really using some dirty boxing and good take downs to get a gnp tko or UD. Good to see Randy fighting again so soon. His conditioning was great during the best fight Ive prolly ever seen (couture nog). Lets do this! If Randy loses, hang up the gloves. If he wins, give him Forrest, Franklin, Machida. Or how amazing would it be to see Randy vs Hendo?

Yeah, he's gotta win over someone much better than Vera.
