Becoming the Natural
My Life in and Out of the CageBook - 2008
Randy Couture--voted "The Greatest Fighter of All Time" by viewers' choice--recounts his record-breaking career, which has made him a UFC legend. Couture wins fights with seemingly effortless ease. He's the only athlete to have held championship titles in both the heavyweight and light heavyweight divisions of the UFC, and he's the only six-time title earner in UFC history. Here he tells his story for the first time, beginning with a childhood spent in search of an elusive father figure, followed by the adrenaline rush that accompanied his first wrestling bout in grade school. In 1997, at age 33, Couture made his UFC debut and won his first heavyweight title. At 40, he defeated five-time defending champion Tito Ortiz for the undisputed light heavyweight title. Couture retired in 2006, only to reemerge the following year and seize the heavyweight championship title once again.--From publisher description.
