Dana White Announces UFC Heavyweight Unification Title For 2009

After watching Dana White's blog video featuring Randy "The Natural" Couture, you could tell Dana was just extremely ecstatic with the return of Couture to the cage. He states that the Natural continues to be the UFC's heavyweight champion. However, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira is also the UFC's heavyweight titleholder.

So who exactly is the real UFC heavyweight champ?? Here's what Dana White had to say about the title situation in this division:

"(Couture vs. Lesnar) will go November 15, then the winner will wait to see who wins the interim fight in December. Then we'll have a heavyweight unification fight next year."

More great fights to come, mixed martial arts just keeps getting better and better...

sorry dude but i dont think you have a "matt serra" intuition right there. This will not be a post and look back on saying "wow I cant believe that guy was right"

I think Nog will pull through in the end. I see Brock getting subbed pretty easily and Couture probably would try to keep it standing, but it will eventually go to the ground.

I voted Lesnar vs Nogueira, to be consistent with what I voted in the Couture-Lesnar thread.

I'm with F>A, Nog will beat either.

Randy would beat Nog, but sadly he might get beaten by Brock and thus Nog subbing Brock in their fight.

Mir is no Serra, much better. After fully recovering from the accident he can return to a top 5 hwt.

I would prefer to see Nog sub them both, because he would, but I suppose just subbing the winner from the Couture/Lesnar fight will work as well.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21
