Naturally, A Couture Comeback

LAS VEGAS - Former UFC heavyweight champion Randy "The Natural" Couture recently announced he will make his return to the ring March 3rd in Columbus, Ohio against Tim Sylvia. Couture, 43, last fought almost a year ago when he suffered a knockout loss to Tito Ortiz. A Sylvia loss would certainly not look good for the much maligned UFC heavyweight division, which is awaiting the debut of Mirko "Cro Cop" Filopovic next month. Couture has signed a two-year, four fight deal, meaning there's a good chance we will see our first UFC loss by way of "death of natural causes," the same hold Ken Shamrock barely escaped from a few months ago.
