Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira open to possible matchup with Randy Couture

Former UFC interim champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira confirmed that he would like to take on former UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture.

“I would accept the fight with Randy Couture,” Nogueira said. “It would be a nice match.”

With both men recently losing their shares of the heavyweight championship, the fight would appear to be a natural fit for both fighters. Nogueira believes that the fight would be a big draw.

“He lost his last fight, but he is still a legend,” Nogueira said. “It would be a great promotion.”

    That matchup actually makes a lot of sense right now. Especially Couture has a very few matchups, that actually makes sense for him, but this one is definitely one of them and I would like to see that.

    The way Nog’s stand up fight went with Mir, I’d predict Couture winning via a TKO over Nog.

    id take randy in that bout too, however isnt randy out of fights on his contract? or does he have one more left. Im under the impression randy wouldnt want to keep fightin unless he got to fight fedor, but maybe getting tuned up by brock changed his mind

    This match will happen in Germany. It has to happen. The UFC is planing an event there in June so that is a prefect time for this fight. Nogueira is known worldwide and so is Couture. I hope Randy will accept this fight. Will Lesnar vs. Mir II happen before then or could that happen on the same card?

    COUTOUR SINED 3 FIGHTS YES.. SO DOWN TO TWO LEFT IN HIS CONTRACT.. coutour thought then he would hold belt and match up with feddor..
    in second or third fight getting past brock.. DANA SED HE WOULD WORK THE FEDDOR THING?.. THAT MEENS HE WOULD OFFER FEDDOR CONTRACTS TO FIGHT IN THE UFC AND NOT DO A CO PROMOTION WITH ANOTHER ORGANIZATION.. TABBOO FOR DANA CUZ HE WOULD BE HELPING TO BUILD UP PRIDE OR AFFLICTION OR K 1 OR M1 OR WHATEVER HE WONT DO THAT WITH HIS BIZZNISS .. so back at it 2 fights left….. this randy fedor thing ?
    RANDYS BACK IN THE UFC.. DANA AND FEDDORS PEOPLES HAVE REACHED NO MIDLE GROUND.. SO RANDY TO FIGHT ANDERSON SPIDER SILVA.. WOULD BE A GREET LAST ATEMPT FOR THE FALLEN CHAMP.. PROB NOT HAPPIN.. RANDY CHUCK..? BUT THEN WHAT ABOUT FIGHT 3..
    RANDY VS NOG GIVES HIM ANOTHER SHOT AT BROCK LESNAR.. RANDY COULD PROBUBLY BEET NOG.. NOGS STAND UP IN THIS ERA OF CAGE FIGHTING FREEKIN SUCKS.. NOG JEST GETS POUNDED BY ANYONE FASTER THEN HE IS.. IT MIGHT WORK SUBM,ITTING GUYS OLD SCHHOOLL IN THE 3RD ROUND.. BUT THESE DAYS IN MMA ITS FAST AND YOU GOTA GET OFF FIRST OR A CLOSE 2 ND TO PULL OUT A WIN .. MOST OF THE TIME.. YA MAYBE NOGS JEWJITS GETS HIM A ARM BAR OR SOMETHING.. NOG LOOKED MEEDDEEOKER AGAINST MEER.. .. SO BY THE WAY RANDY COUTOUR IS TOTALY SCREWED .. HE CANT FIGURE OUT THE WATE THING AND BROCK HAS.. RANDY DROPS TO 205 185 CUZ.. NOG OUT WAYS HIM.. BUT HEERS THE POINT RANDY IS NOT GOING TO BEET BROCK LESNAR IN THERE 2ND FIGHT.. AND HAS LITAL CHANCE IF ANY.. YOU GUYS NEED TO SEE THIS GUY OUT INTO REETIREMENT GRACEFULLY.. SO THE ANNSER I DO NOT HAVE…
    RANDY BEETS NOG LOOSES TO BROCK AND RETIRES..? NOT THAT COOL..
    BEETS NOG OR BEETS ANDERSON SILVA OR BEETS CHUCK..
    RANDY WONT BEET THE SPYDER AND WONT GET THAT FIGHT ??
    RANDY BEETS CHUCK OR NOG.. POSSABLE….
    RANDY BEETS 280LB BROCK.. NOT HAPPINING..
    PART 2 OR MEER BROCK.. MEER HAS IMPROVED BROCK HAS IMPROVED..
    MEER WANTS THE BELT.. IS BIGGER THAN RANDY.. HAS BEET BROCK WITH A LEG LOCK ANCKLE HOLD 1NCE BEFORE..
    I SEE BROCKS STAND UP AND CONTROLLING THE STAND UP BEETING MEER IN FIGHT 2.. AND STAYING CHAMP.. THAT IS BROCK..
    RANDY MEER FIGHT?? SEE ITS REALY SUCKS FOR RANDY RIGHT NOW..
    ALL THE HEAVY WEIGHTS OUT WAY HIM.. HES 45.. MORE OF A ACTOR.. WITH 2 FIGHTS LEFT.. IS RANDY GOING TO LOOSE ALL 3 ..
    YOU GUYS BEETER COME UP WITH A GAME PLAN TO LET THIS ALL GO DOWN PEACEFULLY.. NEED A BIT MORE TIME TO SO THEY CAN TELL US WHAT THERE GONA DO.. INTERISTING.. O YA KNOW KONGO WANTS IN THERE.. RANDY THERE ARE PLENTY OF HEAVY WEIGHTS TO FIGHT THERE FOR YA BRO.. VURDUM.. CARWIN.. BEETING NOG GIVES MINORE PROPS.. BEETING MEER BUT THERE FRENDS.. BUT LIKE IF YOU ONLY WANT FEDOR BUT WILL SETALE FOR BROCK.. CANT BEET EIGHTER ONE .. WHAT IS RANDY GOING TO DO.. RANDY CHUCK IS A EVIN MATCH.. RANDY FIGHTING UP IN WEIGHT.. IN HEAVY WEIGHT TO GUYS OUT WEIGHING HIM BY ATLEAST 25 POUNDS OR MORE.. WELL GET IN THERE RANDY AND WIN ONE DAMMIT..
    2 FIGHTS LEFT? REESINE A 4TH AGAINST FEDOR? OR 4 AND 5 IN UFC AS RANDY CONTINUES HIS CLIME.. 2 FIGHTS LEFT.. NOG THEN BROCK.. SEEMS RIGHT.. BUT RANDY THROO A HISSY FIT AN QWIT AND LOST TITLE TO BROCK. DIDENT WANT NOG LAST TIME.. SED HE WAS CHAMP AND HELD BELT IN LIDDIGATION.. NOT TO RANDY BASH I LIKE THE GUY AND HOPE HIS EXPERINCE ALLOWS HIM TO PULL OUT A WIN..
    SO BACK TO NOG? AND RANDY COULD BEET NOG.. POSSABLE..
    MEER HAS A CHANCE TO BEET BROCK BY SUB AGAIN..
    SO RANDY STAYS IN THE GAME SEEMS LIKE IT MIGHT BE SMART.. COULD BEET NOG THEN FIGHT BROCK OR MEER AND RETIRE AS CHAMP OR SOMETHING.. SCKETCHEE KIND OF.. I DONT HAVE THE ANSER.. GOOD LOOK BOYS .. YOUR GOING TO NEED IT…

    no disrespect to NOG hes a great fighter but, he lukd like shit fighting mir.

    Looks like Nog took a page out of Dave Kaplans book of winning a fight by leading with your face. Tough as hell, or not, you can’t let a guy as big as Mir punch you repeatedly in the mug.
