There is a new rumor floating around the Internet regarding a possible light heavyweight clash between former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Randy Couture and the undefeated Lyoto Machida.
The reports state that sources from within the Xtreme Couture camp have confirmed Couture’s interest but at this point, it’s just that.
Any possibility of a fight between the UFC Hall-of-Famer and Machida would rely on the outcome of the Quinton Jackson vs. Keith Jardine light heavyweight fight at UFC 96.
If Jackson were to win as he is expected, he would automatically get a title shot against Rashad Evans at UFC 100 if both fighters are healthy. That would mean that Machida gets left out of the title picture once again and would pave the way for a fight with Couture.
