Couture Could Fight Lesnar In November, Emelianenko In Early-2009

Randy CoutureUFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture may be on the verge of resolving his contract dispute with the UFC and could return in November to take on heavyweight contender Brock Lesnar in the main event of UFC 91.

Additionally, if he gets past the former collegiate and professional wrestler Couture’s hopes of fighting Fedor Emelianenko could become a reality in early-2009.

The latest developments, on the heals of Friday’s news that Couture would be willing to return to the UFC, were reported by Bloody Elbow, Dave Meltzer, MMA Rated, and MMA Junkie in the last 24-hours.

If an agreement is in fact reached the new deal, which would replace Couture’s previous contract and result in the UFC dropping all breach of contract claims against the UFC hall of famer, could be announced as early as Tuesday.
