Former UFC champion Randy Couture has always been popular with the fans. What’s amazing is he is still a competitive fighter at 46-years-old. Couture takes on heavyweight Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Saturday night in Portland, Oregon at UFC 102. Couture is a former Oregon resident.

Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports describes Couture as “ageless.” The Couture/Noguiera match highlights another deep UFC lineup. Other fights at UFC 102 include Keith “The Dean of Mean” Jardine taking on Thiago Silva and veteran Nate Marquardt battling undefeated Demian Maia. The winner of the Marquardt/Maia bout is rumored to be in line for a middleweight title match against Anderson Silva in 2010 following Dan Henderson’s shot at the belt.

Chris Leben, Brandon Vera and former heavyweight title contender Gabriel Gonzaga are also on the UFC 102 card.
