Episode three of SI.com’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.
