It was rumored recently that Randy "The Natural" Couture (18-10) might face Rich "Ace" Franklin (25-5) at UFC 115 in Vancouver on June 12th. Couture put a stop to that today through his attourney, Sam Spira, who confirmed to Sherdog.com that the fight is possible, but said an August date is the earliest "The Natural" would consider.
That news will likely come as a let-down to many B.C. MMA Fans and effectively sends the UFC back to the drawing board in search of a quality drawing fight to add to the card, which is currently rumoured to be headlined by Chuck Liddell ve Tito Ortiz III
Current Rumoured Card:
Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz III
Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald [CAN]
Tyson Griffin vs. Evan Dunham
Pat Barry vs. Gilbert Yvel
James Wilks vs. Peter Sobotta
