Ultimate Fighting Championship’s Heavyweight

Post  BillyBaldwin on Sun Feb 07, 2010 11:08 am



Randy Couture has held the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s heavyweight title three times and its light heavyweight title twice. After a dominant submission victory over Mark Coleman in a battle of Hall of Fame fighters yesterday in the main event of UFC 109 in Vegas, Couture may be nearing yet another light heavyweight title shot. He dominated Coleman with his boxing in the first round, punched his way to a takedown in the second round and then finished Coleman at 1:09 with a rear naked choke.

“I feel I’m improving each and every time I get out here,” said Couture, who is 46. “This is my third fight in seven months.”Coleman, who said, “The guy is tough, real tough,” never was in the fight and took a beating from start to finish. Couture (18-10) landed a great uppercut in Round 1 and then followed it with a knee that badly hurt Coleman. “I was a little slow tonight,” said Coleman (16-10).

Champion Lyoto Machida and challenger Mauricio “Shogun” Rua are headed for a rematch for the 205-pound belt on May 8 at UFC 113 in Montreal. Couture could get a shot at the winner of that fight.
