Randy Couture will face Lyoto Machida at UFC 129 on April 30 in what will be "The Natural's" final MMA fight.

In anticipation of “UFC 129: St-Pierre vs. Shields“, which is scheduled for Saturday, April 30, at the Rogers Centre in Ontario, Canada, Randy Couture, Lyoto Machida, Jose Aldo and Mark Hominick participated in a media conference call Tuesday.

With three straight wins, former heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Randy Couture will take on fellow former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida, who is coming off back-to-back losses. Win or lose though, Couture confirmed this will be his final fight.

In co-main event action, Mark Hominick will face UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo for the title. Hominick is riding a five-fight win streak, having just knocked out George Roop in January. This will be Aldo’s third title defense as champion.
