Couture vs Nogueira at UFC 101

Couture Accepts UFC 101 Bout with Nogueira by Tom Hamlin

A long-rumored bout between former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture and former UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira appears set to take place.

According to multiple sources from Couture’s camp, he has agreed to face Nogueira at the yet-unannounced UFC 101 sometime in August. The event may take place in Portland, Ore.

The UFC is now awaiting a response from Nogueira’s camp.

Previously, Couture was offered a fight with Nogueira in the first half of 2009, but his role in Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables,” set to film in late March, got in the way.

Couture was also rumored to be under consideration for UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany on June 13, but a source indicated he would be unable to complete a proper 8-week training camp and would not take the fight.

Nogueira was last seen at UFC 92, where he lost his interim heavyweight title in a TKO loss to current interim champ Frank Mir.

Couture – who has fought for or defended a title in 15 of his 19 UFC fights – lost the undisputed heavyweight title when he succumbed to strikes against Brock Lesnar at UFC 91.

Stay tuned to for more updates on this story as they become available.
I can't wait for this match up very interesting to see how this one will go and to see how both of them rebound.

HOLY SHIT this is in Portland I have to try and get a ticket!!!!! I am not going to get my hopes up though. I kind of don't want to see this matchup right now since these guys are two of my favorite fighters and I don't want to see either with two straight losses.

I'd rather see this instead of CC. This fight should've occurred a long time ago.

Going to be a tough one for Randy here. I think Nog will be in great shape and ready for war.

Damn, what a match up. The Bj and Florian fight should be on this card too, right?

What a stud

This is going to be a tough fight for NOG, but I definatly will be rooting for him =)

I think Randy will win a decision but I pray & Hope minotoro is able to secure a submission.
