Randy “The Natural” Couture has speed, strength, stamina, endurance, and a slew of fighting skills. Couture was the first ever UFC fighter to win a championship in two different weight classes, starting his career in the Heavyweight division and becoming the UFC Heavyweight Champion in December 1997. Couture would lose, win and lose the Heavyweight title before switching to the Light Heavyweight class, in which he defeated Chuck Liddell for the title, which was the fight that gave him two title wins in two different weight classes.

On February 4, 2006, Couture retired immediately following a loss to Liddell, and on January 11, 2007, Couture announced that he was coming out of retirement to join the Heavyweight class. Couture proceeded to stun the UFC world by taking down champion Tim Sylvia and becoming a five-time UFC champ. Couture is one of only four UFC fighters to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame.
