“It’s a fun opportunity for me to get into grappling. I never had the chance to do the competitive grappling stuff because of fighting,” said Couture. “I’m looking at it as something to motivate me to go to the gym, continue to train and just enjoy the competition.”
“Training is going pretty well,” added Couture. “I’m crawling back into shape, getting my sprints in and getting back into competitive shape.”
‘The Natural’ also discussed his opponent and his plans to prepare for the bout in terms of weight issues…
“He’s [“Jacare”] not terribly big, he’s 185-190 pounds. He’s a very accomplished Jiu-Jitsu practitioner. It should be very competitive,” commented Randy. “I’m going to come down to 225 [pounds] for the match. I’m around 230 right now so that shouldn’t be too big of a problem.”
