According to MMAWeekly, Randy “The Natural” Couture has agreed to take on Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria at UFC 101 sometime in August.

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.

Couture has been rumored to be fighting at UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany, but filming of Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables” movie will prevent him from training for the June 13th fight date.

    i think randy's got the standup and the wrestling but nog could pull out a sub. i think randys better at the stand up just look at how they both looked on the feet against sylvia. randy put on a boxing clinic while nog got his head beat off.

    I can't wait for this. Randy is very hard to submit, i see randy keeping this against the cage and controlling the whole fight.

    Thats a good point TR. I think he will do that too. Keep it standing and do some dirty boxing. But I think Couture will eventually take it to the ground and end up in Nog's guard for some ground n pound. I can't wait to see how Randy deals with Nog's guard.
