Randy Couture will be starring in the upcoming film The Expendables 2 but there is nothing expendable about the man in the MMA world.
Couture and a few other MMA fighters possess a rare blend of talents both inside and outside the Octagon. Not only can they wow us each time they compete but also can make us hang on every word once a microphone is placed in front of them.
It's not easy being a top-level fighter and having the communications skills necessary to talk fluently in front of a camera. Even the fighters on this list that haven't achieved the highest honor of being called "UFC Champion" are still invaluable to the company for their articulate speaking abilities.
Whether they made their mark in MMA history with their fists or words, all of these men are going to be tough to replace once they step away from the game.
