UFC 105 Randy Couture vs. Brandon Vera

UFC 105: A UFC light heavyweight bout between MMA legend Randy Couture (16-10 MMA, 13-7 MMA) and a recently surging Brandon Vera (11-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) will headline the event that takes place Nov. 14 at Manchester Evening News Arena in Manchester, England.

Both men are coming off of fights last month at UFC 102 in Portland. Vera opened the Pay-per-view portion of the event with a unanimous decision victory over Krzysztof Soszynski in a bout that was hardly memorable.

Couture on the other hand, was beaten by unanimous decision in the night’s main event. He fell to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in a fight that took home fight of the night honors.

Welterweights Dan Hardy and Dong Hyun “Stun Gun” Kim are penciled in to collide at the Manchester Evening News Arena. Hardy is coming off perhaps the biggest win of his career, with a razor thin split decision over Marcus Davis at UFC 99: “The Comeback” in June 2009. It was a super close call and one that had most mixed martial arts fans divided right down the middle.

Nonetheless, it was the third straight win for “The Outlaw” inside the Octagon and his sixth since a disqualification loss to Yoshiyuki Yoshida in late 2007. In fact, Hardy has won 11 of his last 12 fights, including a devastating first round knockout of Rory Markham and a split decision win over the venerable veteran Akihiro Gono.

Dong Hyun “Stun Gun” Kim (12-0-1) has put together Octagon victories over Jason Tan and Matt Brown before suffering a split decision loss to Karo Parisyan. A defeat that was then changed to a no contest after Parisyan tested positive for banned painkillers.

Also, a middleweight fight between Michael Bisping and Dennis Kang at UFC 105. Bisping originally was expected to face Wanderlei Silva at UFC 105, though a recent surgery has left the “Axe Murderer” on the shelf for the immediate future. The British fighter returns to action for the first time since a devastating loss to Dan Henderson at UFC 100. Kang, meanwhile, looks to build on the momentum of an April win over Xavier Foupa-Pokam, which followed a upset submission loss to Alan Belcher in his octagon debut earlier this year.
