Desription .........  One of the most popular fighters in the mixed martial arts universe, prior to entering the octagon, Randy “Natural” Couture distinguished himself in the wrestling field as a three time Olympic alternate, a semi-finalist at the 2000 Olympic Trials, and earlier as a collegiate wrestler and three time National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I All American. Since his UFC debut in 1997, Couture has achieved numerous KO, decision, and submission victories in UFC and RINGS competitions, and is the current UFC champion (July 2008.)

On June 24, 2006, Couture became the fourth fighter to be inducted into the UFC Hall Of Fame (joining Royce Gracie, Dan Severn, and Ken Shamrock.) After a brief retirement, Couture returned to the ring on March 3, 2007 with a solid defeat of Tim Sylvia to claim his third UFC heavyweight title at the age of 43. While successfully defending his title against Gabriel Gonzaga in August of 2007, Couture suffered a broken arm, the result of blocking one of Gonzaga’s kicks. On October 11, 2007, Couture announced his parting ways with the UFC, due to alleged disputes with UFC management. Despite talks with UFC President Dana White and the fact the Couture still holds the UFC Heavyweight title, no date is set for a title match against UFC interim Heavyweight Champion Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira. Couture is the head of, and trains out of, the Xtreme Couture Mixed Martial Arts organization, with facilities in Las Vegas, NV, San Diego, CA, Lombard, IL, Vancouver, WA and Independence, MO, as well as Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Much more improved : Randy improves with years, unlike many other fighters.

Randy Conditioning is one to follow : Randy Couture has his own style of conditioning. It may look simple, but if tried it is really very difficult routine. He starts with his lower part of the body and progressing via various exercises to the top.
