Default Couture vs Coleman rumored for 109

Randy is really making the most of this year, eh?

Quote:
Five-time UFC champion Randy Couture has verbally agreed to face former heavyweight champion Mark Coleman at UFC 109 in a light heavyweight bout.

Sherdog.com was the first to report the news Tuesday afternoon, and MMAWeekly.com subsequently confirmed it with sources close to the situation.

The bout is expected to be the the co-main draw of the Feb. 6 event, slated for the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

A main event between Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort could possibly headline the card, MMAWeekly.com sources said this week, though the fight has yet to be officially confirmed.

Couture, 46, is three days removed from a close decision victory over light heavyweight Brandon Vera at UFC 105 in Manchester, England. It was his first bout at 205 pounds since February 2006, when he lost a bid to regain the title against Chuck Liddell at UFC 57.

Coleman, 44, is coming off a knee injury that forced him to withdraw from a scheduled fight with Tito Ortiz at Saturday's UFC 106, opening the door for an Ortiz rematch with Forrest Griffin. The "Hammer House" original made his last Octagon appearance in July, defeating Stephan Bonnar by unanimous decision at UFC 100.

I really hope it's a stand up slufest. if it turns into a wrestling match it could be the worst fight of all time.
Isn't Coleman working out of xtreme couture?

If Vera can take Randy down Coleman should be able too. I wonder if Randy will try to keep it standing or shoot in on Mark? Kind of an interesting fight. This will be the first fight in UFC history that no mouth guards will be needed. They will both just take out there dentures before the fight.

If its a striking fight Randy should win.

Randy would win the wrestling battle with his cardio.

I've said it before and I'll say it again Randy Couture is an animal with 5 rounds but with 3 he's just not the same.

Those 2 old guys have alot of experience so the Wrestling part at least should be rather Technical! Also didn't the Randy Nog fight take fight of the night honors? I don't automatically equate old with boring! I leave that to the Kid's!

The UFC is just trying to put together their first ever fight for 2 guys whose ages add up to equal 100.
