Well he might fight Rich, but I don't think there is any way he would fight Hendo. Training partners for a very long time, and honestly I would rather watch them in Greco match.
Anyways, I think Couture is helping out the company like Hughes did when he went over to England to fight Alves. Not a great fight on Paper but the UFC knows they could have Couture fight just about any schmuck on their roster and he is going to get viewers and put butts in the seat.
Randy really can't lose this fight, Vera can go ahead and lose and because that is what everyone wants to see, so it shouldn't effect his career that much.
Rich beats Vitor I think he is next in line for a shot at Machida. The UFC has to get the Rampage V. Sugar fight out of the way and that is delayed. Machida is going to fight Shogun, but I think the UFC would like to have Rich get another title shot some where in 2009 or early 2010.
