Title: UFC 109 : Randy Couture vs Mark Coleman
Post by: Rainy on November 18, 2009, 05:43:52 am
UFC Hall of Famers Randy Couture and Mark Coleman are expected to meet in the Octagon at UFC 109 in February, in a battle of legends of the sport who will be a combined 91 years of age.

This will mark Couture's third fight in about five months, which isn't too shabby for a 46 year old.  I'll admit that it's rather neat to the MMA history dork in me that we'll see a fight that was supposed to take place 11 years ago happen, and the fact that both men are still picking up wins in the UFC is very impressive.

But, at the same time we're not exactly looking at a fight with meaning in the division.  Couture has to be the heavy favorite heading in and him taking out Coleman doesn't prove that he is ready to take on a Shogun or a Machida.  It is pretty clear that the hits the roster has taken because of injuries will lead to some moves like this fight that look a bit desperate.
