You may recognize Couture from inside the octagon or on movie screens for The Expendables film series, but this weekend, Randy Couture was outside the ring organizing an amazing charity event alongside Tuff-N-Uff.

Benefiting the United States Troops, the “Future Stars of MMA” amateur fight card featured 14 bouts with 6 title matches on the line. A sold out crowd packed the freshly installed insulated tent for an amazing night of action under the neon lights.

From grappling matches to MMA bouts , there was no absence in cheers from fight fans. Randy’s son, Ryan Couture, had the crowd on their feet as he took the action to the next level inside the cage.

It wouldn’t be “natural” without having two of the D’s sexy ring girls in attendance (pictured here with Reality TV star Horny Mike). The girls heated up the ring and the hearts of everyone in attendance.
