Heavy.com's Jeremy Botter is reporting that a fourth bout between Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture is on tap for UFC 116, which is expected to be held July 3 in Las Vegas.

A fourth bout between UFC Hall of Famers Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture is currently being planned for UFC 116 on July 3.

A source close to the promotion informed Heavy.com of the news on Tuesday afternoon.

The bout would serve as the co-main event of the blockbuster card that is expected to be headlined by a UFC heavyweight title bout between Brock Lesnar and Shane Carwin.

Liddell owns a 2-1 edge in the series with knockout wins at UFC 52 (won UFC light-heavyweight title) and UFC 57 (retained title). Couture won the first meeting at UFC 43 to gain the UFC interim light-heavyweight championship with a third round TKO stoppage.
