Randy Couture is being featured in an hour-long documentary on the Biography Channel. The episode premiers tonight.
He’s the five-time champ of America’s fastest growing sport. His fights sell out arenas and millions of fans in 36 countries worldwide tune in to telecasts weekly and pay top dollar for exclusive pay-per-view events. He’s Randy Couture: the Ultimate Fighting Champion. The simple title belies the near inhuman strength it has taken to kick, choke and claw his way to the top of professional fighting. From early days on his high school wrestling team to the Army and Olympics, this Washington native has built a career on years of training–perfecting his signature style referred to as the “ground and pound.” Losses on and off the mat take their toll, but also drive Couture to cement his title as “the best fighter of all time.”

[EDIT 8/6/08 2:58PM ET] – Apparently I’m out of touch with television these days. I didn’t realize and wasn’t paying attention when I wrote this post that “Biography” actually has its own channel now (probably because I don’t get the channel). I thought the show was still on A&E. I’ve revised the post to reflect the correct channel. I apologize for the misinformation.
