Signed, sealed, and delivered. Although bout agreements haven't been signed, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira has now agreed to face Randy Couture at UFC 101, likely to be held in August.

It's going to be a great fight between two heavyweights with giant hearts, although to see one lose right now will be bad for me.

Could honestly go either way thats why this is sucha great fight. I honestly see Randy having an edge in this with his boxing and wrestling.


But both of these guys are legends and nogueira is the toughest guy in MMA IMO I feel like it's the perfect time in both of there lives to face each other; both comming off a loss, but both still very much in the running in most peoples eyes.



GREAT FIGHT
GOOD TIMING

Horray!!!! Randy is taking this one boys. He will hold the heavyweight title again before he finally retires for good. Mark my words boys, mark my words.

Although it sounds like it's all but done within the fight circles you still might want to change that thread title DC, just till it is signed sealed and delivered for sure. I came here thinking it was now legaly binding and officially set in stone between both parties. But it's just news of people agreeing to fight.

If this happens i will be exstatic. I think NOG comes out strong and wins via UD.
