Couture Vs. Lesnar: November 15th

| September 3, 2008 | 0 Comments

Sherdog reported yesterday:

Six-time UFC champion Randy Couture will return to the Octagon this November, ending an 11-month legal battle with the promotion he’s called his home for the last 11 years.

A previously announced bout between UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Frank Mir scheduled for December will determine the next contender for the UFC heavyweight crown, said White. White described the scenario as a “heavyweight tournament.”

Under the new agreement, the UFC will also attempt to lock down a bout between Couture and No. 1 ranked heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko in 2009. The highly anticipated bout has been heralded as the fight of the decade.

We’re gonna do everything we can to make that fight happen,” said White.

First off, let me just say Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeessss!. There is so much that is amazing about this announcement: Couture back, Heavyweight Tourney, One step closer to Best Fight Ever.

Little known fact: Lesnar had to a have special, larger than anyone else, pair of gloves made for his first fight versus Frank Mir. I predict he should have a special over-sized bodybag made, because “The Natural” is hungry and that giant does not have the experience to hang with the best Heavyweight in UFC history.
