According to the FightNetwork, the UFC has filed an injunction against current UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture. The injunction will prevent Couture from corning or even attending any IFL events. It is unclear whether the injunction will affect the Xtreme Couture gym’s involvement in the 2008 season of the IFL.

In its latest and most aggressive legal move against its reigning heavyweight champion, Zuffa LLC — the parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship — filed a preliminary injunction against Randy Couture that seeks to prevent the 44-year-old from appearing at, or in promotion for, the International Fight League show on Friday, Feb. 29 at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
