Filipino-American UFC fighter Brandon “The Truth” Vera is set to do battle with five-time UFC Champion Randy “The Natural” Couture when UFC 105: Couture vs Vera kicks off at the Manchester Evening News Arena in Manchester, England this coming November 14, 2009.
Brandon Vera will be fighting Randy Couture at the Light Heavyweight category in UFC 105, a weight class that Brandon Vera has been dominating most recently. Brandon Vera has, in fact, won his last twolight heavyweight UFC fights over UFC fighters Krzysztof Soszynski and Mike Patt.
Of course, Randy Couture has been a UFC Light Heavyweight champion twice, but his recent fights have been in the Heavyweight division against the likes of Antonio Nogueira and Brock Lesnar, where he lost both fights. However, Randy Couture might actually fight better in the light heavyweight, although the weight loss might certainly affect his performance against the likes of Brandon Vera, who seems to be perfectly built to fight at the Light Heavyweight division.
Other fights on the card for UFC 105: Couture vs Vera include: Michael Bisping vs Denis Kang, Dan Hardy vs Mike Swick, and James Wilks vs Matt Brown among others.
