Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: Randy Couture Is Ready to Get His Stand and Bang On, + More

Episode three of’s “What It Takes” series with Randy Couture delves a little deeper into his striking training for the UFC 102 bout with Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and it seems as if Couture wasn’t kidding when he told us he thought kickboxing was going to be an important facet to beating Big Nog.  Considering that Nogueira got picked apart on the feet by Frank Mir, regardless of whether he was anywhere near 100% that night or not, it’s probably a sound game plan for Couture to use his wrestling to stay upright while testing Nogueira’s striking skills.

After the jump, a video promo for UFC 103 that actually succeeded in reminding us that there’s a pretty hype-worthy card coming to Dallas in September.  And that’s without even mentioning the Josh Koscheck/Frank Trigg fight that you all can’t stop talking about.  Just kidding.  We know it’s really Efrain Escudero/Cole Miller that has you truly pumped up.

i've said it before: cole miller and joe lauzon will one day dominate the lightweight class.

and i'm right there with you jugger... i wish some fighters would never decline but nog, wandy and chuck just might be there.

I love Big Nog. Always cheer for him. But every time out he seems to get slower and slower. Almost like he's fighting under water. Randy should be able to run circles around him, even at 46 years old.

Wish this fight had happened about 5-6 years ago.

Randy, Randy, he's our man, if he can't do it.........he'll probably have to retire after his last fight is up on his UFC contract which is after this last fight with Big Nog unless, Dana White gets a wild hair and re-signs him! EVERYONE TOGETHER NOW!!! Randy, Randy......

I think he's got Big Nog's number. He never comes in out of shape or without a sound game plan. Are we sure that Randy is not like Benjamin Button and is aging in reverse?

I'm looking forward to seeing how Trigg handles himself in the cage again. I hope he comes back strong.
