    02-04-2010 03:45 PM:The UFC is showing it has a heart and eye toward creative matchmaking. Matt Hughes and Renzo Gracie will fight April 10. During the summer, it's Chuck Liddell-Tito Ortiz III and this weekend two guys that fans wanted to see fight starting about 1998, finally enter the Octagon together. Randy Couture is 46 and Mark Coleman is 45. Couture is considered a freak while many look at Coleman on his last legs. That's got to be why the sportsbooks have installed Couture as an obscene minus-500 favorite.

    Watch Dave Farra from break down the big fights on the card with myself and Ben Fowlkes from Cage Potato.
