Randy Couture vs. Fedor Emelianenko? Written by Lirpa Santina Sloof LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (April 1, 2008) - In a wild turn of events that no one could have predicted, Randy Couture has signed a 1-fight contract with to return to the UFC. The one fight contract has effectively nullified their bitter ongoing legal dispute. The ongoing legal battle that was raging between the UFC and Randy Couture (Extreme Couture) has been resolved and the two fights remaining on the previous contract have been waived. It is believed that Couture has received a healthy raise from the previous two fights remaining on the contract, and the $500,000 dollar signing bonus he received will not be returned. The return of Randy Couture raises questions about the availability of Fedor Emelianenko. Representatives hinted that Emelianenko’s short free agency period could be over, and a bout between the two fighters has been agreed to in principal, albeit verbally. It appears that the mega-fight between Randy Couture and Emelianenko is more possible than ever and the UFC’s heavyweight division has more than made up for the loss of Tim Sylvia with the signing of Emelianenko. The length of the Emelianenko deal is unknown at this time. Surprisingly it is rumoured that as part of the deal Couture demanded that he get more money than Fedor and will receive one dollar more for the fight than Emelianenko! We will have more on this story as it develops.
