    The UFC will hold a media conference call today at 3 p.m. ET (noon P.T.), and according to our content partners at Yahoo! Sports, the organization will officially announce the return of formerly estranged UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture (16-8 MMA, 8-5 UFC) to the organization.

    As part of his return to the UFC, Couture is expected to fight Brock Lesnar in the main event of UFC 91 on Nov. 15.

    MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) first reported the possibility of Couture's return last week.

    Since then, negotiations have quickly progressed, and the 45-year-old UFC hall-of-famer has reportedly agreed to a new three-fight deal.

    A long-term contract likely means Couture and the UFC will give up on their long-running legal battle regarding his former contract.

    Couture hasn't fought since a TKO victory over Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC 74 in August 2007.




    more of the same, it seems...

    I think it's likely "WAR FERTITTA" in this instance
