No, not the Randy Couture vs. Brandon Vera fight slated to headline UFC 107 on November 14th in Manchester, England. This scrap will be between their ladies, former lady in Couture’s case. It is being reported that Strikeforce is currently trying sign a Kim Couture vs. Kerry Vera matchup for a yet-to-be determined event.

Sherdog.com was the first to report the potential cat fight, stating that it could go down as early as November 20th, however the organization was not able to confirm that rumor at this time.

Couture was last seen mauling Lina Kvokov at “Strikeforce: Destruction” in November 2008. She was scheduled to face Miesha Tate in May, however Couture pulled out from the fight due to personal reasons. It was around the time that reports surfaced that the Coutures were filing for divorce.

This will be Vera’s second professional fight as she made her MMA debut with a unanimous decision win over Leslie Smith in May under the Bellator Fighting Championships banner.
