Randy Couture isn’t getting an younger and it looks like he’s scheduling fights with that fact in mind.
According to a report on Sherdog, Couture is already in the process of booking his next fight for Feb. 6 at UFC 109. His opponent? Someone his own age for a change — fellow UFC hall of famer Mark Coleman.
Randy Couture and Mark Coleman have verbally agreed to a light heavyweight headlining bout at UFC 109 on Feb. 6 in Las Vegas, Sherdog.com has learned through sources close to the bout.
If signed, the bout will mark the first time UFC hall of famers have met in the Octagon. Both former heavyweight champions, Couture was originally slated to face Coleman at UFC 17 in May 1998 in Mobile, Ala., before the four-time Olympic alternate hurt his ribs prepping for that year’s Greco-Roman wrestling Nationals.
Better late than never? Or is this one just too late? I’m not terribly excited about it, I’ll say that.
