Randy Couture to sign new UFC contract...(update)

Quote:
UPDATE

According to Dave Meltzer:

"A source close to Randy Couture has confirmed today that Couture is in negotiations with UFC for a new three-fight deal which would end the nearly nine month legal battle between the two sides.

"If the deal is closed, and the source said they are hoping to conclude negotiations and announce the match sometime within the next week, Couture would face Brock Lesnar on 11/15, most likely in Portland, Oregon.

"Couture was said to be hoping that if everything went well, the next two fights could involve Fedor, Nogueira, and/or Chuck Liddell. However, all previous hangups involving Emelianenko and UFC remain.

It would appear from reports that Couture will sign a multi-fight deal with an increased pay structure. An annoucement is said to be likely on Tuesday next week, bringing an end to almost a year of legal wrangling's.

I wonder how much UFC is dishing out for Couture, I'm guessing $500,000, but I can't see it being any higher than what Chuck gets.

I doubt he'll sign for less than what Lesnar gets, which is $250,000. Chuck gets $500,000, so, maybe $400,000?

I agree, but lets face it that fight would make a lot of money for the UFC and they need a headline fight for UFC 91 and they are running out of options.
