    [​IMG]After a very public split with the organization back in October, reigning UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture has agreed to return to the UFC, and he'll meet Brock Lesnar in a UFC 91 championship bout with Brock Lesnar.

    UFC President Dana White today confirmed the news in a media conference call.

    White also confirmed that UFC 91 will take place Nov. 15 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas -- not at the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Ore., as first expected.

    As part of Couture's return to competition, White confirmed that their ongoing legal battle has been resolved.

    "I think some compromises were made on both sides," Couture said.

    "All I give a [expletive] about is that he's back and fighting," White said.

    White also confirmed that the winner of an upcoming fight between interim heavyweight champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Frank Mir will meet the Couture vs. Lesnar winner sometime in 2009 to unify the titles.

    I cant believe its a title fight.

    Coutore quit so he should have to give up the belt imo.

    Either way its going to be one heck of a fight.

    I just hope Dana White isnt pulling a Vince McMahon and just payed Randy a crazy amount to throw the fight.

    Cant wait to see it though.

    If Lesnar beats Couture and Nogueira/Mir than UFC better do what ever they can to get Fedor signed up.

    I like Couture, he always manages to beat even the toughest opponents who look to have an advantage, but man how long can he fight? 45 years old and still doing it.
