With less than 10 days before the curtain is drawn on “UFC 109: Relentless,” the organization has finally confirmed the entire roster that will participate inside the Mandalay Bay Event Center on February 6th. The 11-bout fight card will feature a light heavyweight scrap between UFC Hall of Famers Randy Couture and Mark Coleman.
Coleman was booked to fight Tito Ortiz at UFC 106 in November, but was forced to pull out of the card due to an injury during training. The veteran claims that his wheel is all healed-up and he’s ready to go.
Couture was last seen taking a controversial unanimous decision victory over Brandon Vera at UFC 105. It was his first light heavyweight fight in nearly 3 years. The fan-favorite has respectfully requested this showdown for a while and it will finally happen under Vegas’ bright lights.
Here are all of the fighters scheduled to be participating in the Spike TV/pay-per-view broadcast.
