Couture-Nogueira fight seems likely

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 at the yet-to-be-announced UFC 101 sometime in August.

Sources in Couture's camp told MMAWeekly.com that "The Natural" has agreed to the fight, which could take place in Portland, Ore. The UFC is awaiting from a response from "Minotoro."

Couture was rumored to possibly fight at UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany in June 13, but filming for his role in Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables,” set to shoot in late March wouldn't allow him to complete a legitimate eight-week training camp.
