Randy Couture is looking to be in top shape for his UFC 109 main event bout against Mark ”The Hammer” Coleman. Couture is coming off a unanimous decision victory against Brandon Vera at UFC 105. Coleman last fought at UFC 100 when he out-wrestled Stephan Bonner and won a unanimous decision.
Although Thiago Silva lost a unamimous decision to Rashad Evans at UFC 108, Thiago nearly finished the fight in the 3rd roung with a two-punch combination that dazed Evans. After the exchange, Thiago was able to push Rashad to the ground but was unable to capitalize from there.
