Randy Couture and Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera may finally meet in the cage, if a report from MMA Weekly is correct.

According to MMAWeekly.com

A long-rumored bout between former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture and former UFC interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira appears set to take place.

According to multiple sources from Couture’s camp, he has agreed to face Nogueira at the yet-unannounced UFC 101 sometime in August. The event may take place in Portland, Ore.

The UFC is now awaiting a response from Nogueira’s camp.

It is good that this dream matchup is finally coming to fruition. It is just a shame that it didn’t happen a year and a half earlier, before Randy’s second exit from the UFC. I think with both men coming off losses and looking to get back into title contention, it has the possibility of being one of those fights that will be talked about for years to come.
