Randy Couture is one of the greatest heavyweights the sport has ever known. He made somewhat of a hobby out of the UFC heavyweight division, and his performances have made him a legend. While the HW division was not his only home, a great portion of his legacy was forged there.
So, it is fitting now, with the next installment of the Strikeforce HW Grand Prix set to take place, that Couture would weigh in and share his expert opinions on how he feels the fight will go.
This tournament has a nostalgic feel as it returns many longtime MMA fans to the glory days of Pride and even the earliest UFC days. The grand prix is also introducing an entire new generation of fans to a format of MMA that has long since been forgotten.
The action in Dallas will bring the entire MMA world one step closer to acknowledging one of the top HW fighters in the world. While Cain Velasquez is the king of the division worldwide, the winner of this tournament will be a not-so-distant second.
Affliction Clothing has been a staple in the MMA community, and their partnership with a legend like Couture comes as no surprise. Affliction CEO Tom Atencio is no stranger to the confines of the cage himself.
He and Randy sat down to break down the fight between Alistair Overeem and Fabricio Werdum, in particular. Listen as two MMA icons share their takes on what is sure to be an amazing fight.
