RANDY COUTURE

Brandon Vera takes on UFC legend Randy Couture Saturday night in UFC 105 at the M.E.N. arena in Manchester, England. Other fighters on the card include Mike Swick and Great Britain’s Michael Bisping.

At age 46, Couture is dropping down to light heavyweight. He will fight Saturday at 205 pounds. Couture is coming off back-to-back UFC losses against Brock Lesnar and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira following his winning the heavyweight championship in 2007. Couture reigned as UFC heavyweight champion at the age of 45 after winning the belt with a knockout of Gabriel Gonzaga.

This is a rare evening where UFC is going head-to-head with boxing for viewers. Also, each sport (Couture for UFC and Manny Pacquiao for boxing) is featuring arguably its biggest draw in attempt to chase viewers. What UFC will NOT do this time is go head-to-head with Pacquiao for pay-per-view dollars. UFC is putting Saturday night’s event on free tv. UFC 105 starts live at 5 pm Eastern on the cable station Spike TV.
