According to mmajunkie.com, UFC’s parent company (Zuffa) won the first round of a court battle against fighter Randy Couture. A Texas appeals court refused to grant Couture a summary judgement to let him out of his UFC contract.
Couture has two fights remaining on that contract. He wants to fight fellow heavyweight Fedor Emelianenko. That fight is probably not possible in the UFC. The dispute between Couture and the UFC is now likely to be settled by a Nevada arbitrator.
