There's still no word on whether or not reigning (and resigned) UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture will defend his title on this card against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. "The Natural" has been offered the bout, according to recent comments from UFC President Dana White, but has not made a decision on whether or not he will return.

In addition, Couture and White discussed that matter face-to-face last week and a decision regarding his future -- and the heavyweight belt -- should be known soon.

If Couture passes on the fight, it is widely believed that Nogueira will instead face former champion Tim Sylvia for the vacant strap in the main event of the evening.
