When the history of mixed martial arts is written, two names will stand at the top of the heavyweight division - Randy "The Natural" Couture and Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira. But these two legendary former champions aren't thinking about the history books, they're looking to make another run at the UFC title, and to get there, they must face each other in the Octagon in the main event of UFC 102: Couture vs. Nogueira.
In the co-feature, two of the light heavyweight division's heaviest hitters collide, when perennial contender Keith "The Dean of Mean" Jardine takes on Brazilian powerhouse Thiago Silva.

This is a beefy card gentlemen!
hopefully Coture dusnt have old-man-syndrome just yet (theres always hoping).I see Thiago winning somehow because hes awesome and i dont like Jardines bat **** crazy way of fighting. Nog... well... I'm not sure what to think anymore.
I am looking forward to seeing Maia fight again. Amazing jiu jitsu of the highest order. Isn't James Irvin injured?
An epic, old school main event needs an epic, old school poster.
(I don't know source, whoever made it deserves kudos)
Dayam, that is the most impressive thing I've ever seen on an MMA forum.

Really looking forward to Marquardt-Maia; Vera-Krzysztof Soszynski should be pretty interesting too.
Let's get started with the predictions and picks:
Randy Couture vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Keith Jardine vs. Thiago Silva
Chris Leben vs. Jake Rosholt
Demian Maia vs. Nate Marquardt
Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Brandon Vera
Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Chris Tuchscherer
Justin McCully vs. Mike Russow (?)
Todd Duffee vs. Tim Hague (?)
Nick Catone vs. Mark Munoz (?)
Marcus Aurelio vs. Evan Dunham (?)
Ed Herman vs. Aaron Simpson
Maia is gonna have trouble with Marquardt.
That's the fight I'm most looking forward to.
