It is strongly rumored that Randy Couture will return to the octagon in the main event at UFC 105 opposite Brandon Vera in a light heavyweight showdown. After weeks of scrambling for main events and coming up short, the UFC turned to Couture, who was willing to fight the best fighter they could find at 205 pounds.
The UFC originally approached Couture with a bout against Rashad Evans, and Couture accepted, but Evans turned the fight down. Couture is one of the biggest names to ever appear on a UFC Spike TV show.
The rumor was confirmed by reliable sources close to a number of parties early Sunday morning.
