    A light heavyweight match-up between five-time UFC champion Randy Couture and Brandon Vera is targeted for UFC 105.

    The news was first reported by British website Telegraph.co.uk. According to MMAWeekly.com's sources, both fighters have verbally agreed to the fight and are expected to receive bout agreements shortly.

    UFC 105 is set for Nov. 14 at the Manchester Evening News Arena in Manchester, England.

    Couture (16-10) appeared last month at UFC 102, losing a unanimous decision to former Pride and interim UFC champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in a bout considered by many to be an instant classic. Following the bout, Couture hinted at a possible drop to 205 pounds, where he fought for nearly three years, thrice winning title honors.

    Vera (14-3) fought alongside Couture on the Pacific Northwest card last month, winning a unanimous decision victory over Krzystzof Soszynski. Once a heavyweight himself, Vera has notched a 3-1 Octagon record as a light heavyweight.

    After the Couture/Nogueira fight, I say with certainty that either of those guys would push Vera's shit in.

    very interesting that Randy would take a fight with Vera though- he must think Vera is very talented. Randy wont fight just anybody. Was actually hoping for Randy/Cro Cop...

    he's trained with him in the past and has been singing his praises since his first fight in the UFC.


    Both great guys, dont want to see either lose. I cant help but think it will be boring with Randy getting the decision on top or Vera getting the decision on the feet.

    Then again, i thought the same thing about Couture vs. Nog :dunno:

    Yeah you are right. Vera is supposed to have really good grecko wrestling.
    I think Randy is going to push Vera hard, which could turn the fight into another FOTN.
    come to think of it- Randy's last 4 fights have ALL been really really exciting fights. Sylvia, Gonzaga, Lesnar, Noguiera.

    Speaking of Noguira, i have a feeling if Cro Cop wins against Dos Dantos, we might see a rematch :x:

    that would be awesome.

    Vera needs to use what Sylvia, Gonzaga, Lesnar, & Noguiera dont have. Footwork and head movement, stay away from the fence, and tag randy moving in. I think the fight goes to whoever gets the other to fight their fight.

    .

    Vera has some really good wrestling and clinch work of his own. I doubt it'd be as strong as Randy's, but even if he's able to turn him on the cage a few times and strike could win him some rounds.

    Who knows maybe Randy has a hard time making the 205 cut and also comes in weakened, I highly doubt that though.

    He's been a wrestler for 30+ years. I bet cutting weight is as easy for him as getting dressed is for you or me.

    Couture by whatever he wants

    he's to smart for Vera, I don't think Vera will be able to utilize his kicks and Couture will work him against the cage.
