Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar – Whaaaa???

September 2, 2008

This is just one of those moments where I am just going to sit back and take it all in.

Randy Couture is back in the UFC.

On a conference call today, UFC President Dana White announced that Couture will return to the organization that he spurned last year, and the UFC will welcome one of its best and most popular fighters back into the Octagon. White referred to Couture as “the heavyweight champion of the UFC,” and he confirmed that Couture will defend his title against Brock Lesnar in a five-round title fight on November 15 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Couture announced his resignation from UFC last year and expressed frustration at the time at both his compensation and the UFC’s failure to sign Fedor Emelianenko, the sport’s top heavyweight and the opponent who would give Couture the greatest challenge of his career. As recently as March, Couture was saying he’d fight Fedor this fall and not in the UFC, but things have changed.

“He’s made it very clear how bad he wants to fight Fedor, and we’re going to do everything in our power to make a Fedor fight happen, but we’re not going to mess with anyone’s contract. He’s under contract now with another promotion,” White said. “If he becomes available, we would love to make the Fedor fight.”

For now, Couture will fight Lesnar in one of the biggest fights in UFC history.
