Former heavyweight and light heavyweight champion, Randy Couture (16-10), could return to the 205-pound division to take on Brandon Vera (11-3) in the main event at UFC 105 from the Manchester Evening News (MEN) Arena in Manchester, England, on Nov. 14, according to BloodyElbow.com.
The report indicates that UFC sources have confirmed the showdown, which was cobbled together when the lightweight championship match between division kingpin BJ Penn and number one contender Diego Sanchez was booked for UFC 107 on Dec. 12 to compensate for the postponed fight between Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Rashad Evans.
In fact, the report indicates that Evans turned down the opportunity to challenge "The Natural," forcing the promotion to seek "The Truth."
More on this breaking news shortly.
UFC 105 will feature hometown hero, Michael "The Count" Bisping, in the co-main event opposite Denis Kang, as well as a welterweight battle between Dan Hardy and Dong Hyun "Stun Gun" Kim. It will air on Spike TV at 9 p.m. ET on fight night.
