Randy Couture has long been considered one of the smartest most adaptable fighters in mixed martial arts. As he has gotten a little bit older, the 43 year-old Couture has proven that his smarts and adaptability aren’t limited to his “in-ring” experiences, although he is making his return to the Octagon on March 3rd to challenge UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia.

Couture has long been a part of various other ventures outside of competing. He and longtime training partner Matt Lindland started their own fight promotion, Sportfight, several years ago and it is still going strong. Couture has also jumped into the supplement business with Couture Nutrition and is a part of the Legends Gym in downtown Hollywood, Calif.
