UFC 109 marks the first time two Hall of Famers will meet in the Octagon when former champions Randy Couture and Mark Coleman face each other. Chael Sonnen and Nate Marquardt will battle for a shot at the Middleweight title, submission wizard Demain Maia and rising 185er Dan Miller will go at it in Maia’s first fight since being KO’d by Nate at UFC 102 and trash talkers Matt Serra and Frank Trigg will meet in a welterweight clash. Mike Swick will try to rebound from a loss to Dan Hardy when he faces Paulo Thiago. The tough Brazilian has fought both of Swick’s AKA welterweight teammates, KO’ing Josh Koscheck in his UFC debut and dropping a decision to Jon Fitch at UFC 100. The undercard will also feature the UFC debuts of Rolles Gracie and top collegiate wrestler, Phil Davis.
Yahoo’s Cagewriter, Steve Cofield, will join Pep to break down the event and we’ll have a special Closing Round with Bodybuilding.com’s Brandon Poe to talk about the mega-company’s place in the MMA industry.
