The Biography Channel will debut a special on UFC heavyweight champion Randy Couture tonight at 10 PM ET. It’s basically the old biography shows you used to see on A&E, except now they’ve been relegated to their own channel on digital cable. The channel can be found on DirecTV and DISH Network but it varies in terms of cable providers.
A description from the channel’s official website:
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.”
These type of shows are usually pretty good and I can only assume that they did a decent job with Couture’s story. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to check it out or not but anyone that does is welcome to leave a mini-report in the comments.
