Sherdog is reporting that MMA legends Randy Couture and Mark Coleman will meet at UFC 109 in a light heavyweight matchup. This will be the first time in Octagon history where two hall of famers will face-off.

UFC 109 is rumored to take place on February 6th in Las Vegas, Nevada and is tentatively scheduled to be headlined by a middleweight title bout between champ Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort.

Silva is currently recovering from elbow surgery but looks to be on track for a February showdown with the former UFC 205-pound champion.

Coleman was booked to fight Tito Ortiz this weekend at UFC 106, but was forced to pull out of the card due to an injury during training.

Couture took a unanimous decision victory over Brandon Vera at UFC 105 this past weekend. It was his first light heavyweight fight in nearly 3 years.

With the addition of the Couture /Coleman bout, here’s how an updated UFC 109 card looks:
