Over the weekend, the televised line up for the UFC 91: "Couture vs. Lesnar" pay-per-view (PPV) event came into focus when several previously reported bouts slated for the 10-fight card were made official.
The promotion is already billing its main event between heavyweight champion Randy Couture and WWE professional wrestling sensation-turned mixed martial artist, Brock Lesnar, as "The Biggest Fight in UFC History."
In addition, UFC officials have high expectations for tickets sales, as well as attendance figures at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on November 15.
Here’s how the UFC 91 card appears today:
265 lbs.: UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture (16-8) vs. Brock Lesnar (2-1)
Main card (Televised):
155 lbs.: Kenny Florian (10-3) vs. Joe Stevenson (29-8)
185 lbs.: Amir Sadollah (1-0) vs. Nick Catone (5-0)
265 lbs.: Gabriel Gonzaga (9-3) vs. Josh Hendricks (14-4)
185 lbs.: Demian Maia (8-0) vs. Nate Quarry (10-2)
Under card (May not be broadcast):
170 lbs.: Dustin Hazelett (11-4) vs. Tamdan McCrory (9–1)
155 lbs.: Jorge Gurgel (12-4) vs. Aaron Riley (26-10-1)
155 lbs.: Jeremy Stephens (13-3) vs. Rafael dos Anjos (11-2)
155 lbs.: Alvin Robinson (9–3) vs. Mark Bocek Record (5-2)
185 lbs.: Matt Riddle (1-0) vs. Ryan Thomas (9-2)
With little more than a month until showtime, it’s unlikely that another marquee bout will be added to the card. That means that the lightweight showdown between top contenders Kenny Florian and Joe Stevenson will perhaps serve as the co-featured bout of the evening.
