    Randy Couture vs Lyoto Machida added to UFC 129 in Toronto

    Randy Couture vs Lyoto Machida added to UFC 129 in Toronto.

    TORONTO -- Randy (The Natural) Couture is coming to Toronto.

    UFC president Dana White confirmed to The Canadian Press that the UFC Hall of Famer will take on former light-heavyweight champion Lyoto (The Dragon) Machida at UFC 129 in Toronto's Rogers Centre on April 30.

    The main event of the card, the UFC's first in Toronto, features welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and Jake Shields.

    The 47-year-old Couture (19-10), a former light-heavyweight and heavyweight champion, is coming off a first-round submission win over former world champion boxer James Toney at UFC 118 in Boston in August.

    The 32-year-old Machida (16-2) last fought at UFC 123 in November, when he lost a narrow split decision to Quinton (Rampage) Jackson.

    NOTES -- The UFC cautions those wanting tickets for the Toronto show to be wary of websites from independent ticket brokers already advertising tickets. "These sites are bogus as the on-sale has not yet started. We hope to announce the date of the on-sale in the weeks to come," said a UFC Canada spokesman.

    If this matchup goes down, I'll be in heaven. I've always liked Randy, but in the last year or two, I've become a huge fan of Lyoto Machida. PizD, you're in Toronto, right?

    Well here's hoping Machida learned something from the Jackson loss, otherwise I'm gonna call it 29-28, 29-28, 28-29 Couture.

    This is the first fight that I can think of since maybe Bonnar/Griffin where I really want both fighters to win....

    I guess I want one more victory for the old man. Couture by UD

    I'll be the first to call it for Machida then. TKO in Round 2 or 3

    Nice addition..now I get to see Randy live. Even if he loses it will still be nice to watch him fight.

    Or maybe Randy scores octagon control points by pinning him to the side of the cage.

    YEah....

    I see either a dirty boxing win for Couture, or a TKO for Machida.

    Gotta lean towards Randy though...
