Couture vs Nogueira Scheduled for August UFC
MMA legends Randy Couture and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira have agreed to fight in August. The fight which must be scheduled around Couture’s acting schedule was agreed to by both parties this past week.
Couture, who lost his UFC Heavyweight title to Brock Lesnar at UFC 91, will be filming The Expendables with Sylvester Stallone and Jet Li between March and May as well as a smaller role in The Warrior later this year.
Nogueira has not fought since losing his interim UFC Heavyweight title. ‘Big Nog’ was upset by Frank Mir at UFC 92. Previously fans thought ‘Big Nog’ vs Couture would be the unification bout for the UFC Heavyweight championship. With the two upsets, Mir vs. Lesnar will be the unifier but with this announcement, fans will still be lucky enough to see Couture vs Nogueira.
