Shawn Tompkins has left Xtreme Couture to start his own team at TapouT’s new mixed martial arts facility in Las Vegas. Rumors of the split surfaced yesterday. Today, Tompkins confirmed it with RawVegas.tv and spoke at length about his decision to leave. The short answer is he felt it was time to step out of Randy’s shadow. At this point, no word on which fighters, if any, will leave Xtreme Couture and follow Tompkins to TapouT.
