Lesnar to fight for UFC title
The UFC announced today that it has reached a 3-fight agreement with UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture and he will fight Minnesota native Brock Lesnar on November 15 at UFC 91 for his title.
Couture (16-8) had been locked in a court battle with the UFC, but decided that at age 45 there was no time to waste and agreed to make yet another comeback in the UFC.
Lesnar (2-1) will fight for a UFC title in just his fourth career fight, which is exactly the same stage of Coutures career when he first won the UFC heavyweight title over Maurice Smith in December of 1997.
