The August/September 2010 issue is on newsstands now and available in the UFC Store. Here’s a look at some of the features:
Randy “The Natural” Couture
Over the last 13 years Randy Couture
has made 22 appearances in the Octagon. He’s held five championship
belts. And he has had to listen to boxers talk trash about the quality
of striking in mixed martial
arts every step of the way. On August 28, Couture gets a chance to set
the record straight when he takes on boxing legend, James “Lights Out”
Toney at UFC 118 in Boston. Pick up the new issue to find out what
Couture had to say about Toney making his UFC debut, working with
Sylvester Stallone on his new summer flick The Expendables, and more.
World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz
found his way into mixed martial arts almost by accident. Find out how
knocking out a guy who wandered into Cruz’s old Tucson gym put Cruz on
the path to his world title.
