UFC Offers Couture Title Defense

UFC president Dana White and a number of UFC fighters spoke with media personnel today, focusing mostly on Saturday’s UFC 78 event in Newark, NJ, but also addressing the Randy Couture situation.

Apparently, White and the UFC offered Couture a title defense fight. “We officially offered it to him and we haven't heard back yet. We should know this week. He (sent me a text message) yesterday and said he wants to sit down and talk.”

As for an interim heavyweight title, White ain’t having any of that: “No. Randy's going to make a decision one-way or the other. We're going to get together next week, I think, and talk and see where we're at.”
