Check Out Randy Couture’s First Performance On Dancing With The Stars

Randy Couture is quite literally following of Chuck Liddell by appearing on the hit show Dancing With The Stars this season, and judging by the reactions to his first dance routine he’s proving to be a ‘natural’.

Couture and his dancing partner Karina Smirnoff scored 31 out of 40 for their performance which left them placed fifth out of the 13 couples taking part in the 19th season on ABC.

Liddell appeared on the show back in 2009 and made it to the fifth round of the show before being elimated.

No doubt Couture will be looking to outdo his fellow UFC hall-of-famer who he had a famous trilogy with in the Octagon, winning the first bout between them by TKO before losing their next two meetings by knockout.

Couture retired from the sport in 2011 at the age of 48, but he’s kept busy since then, appearing in all three of ‘The Expendables’ movies as well as featuring on Spike TV’s ‘Fight Master’ and ‘Gym Rescue’ shows.

Take a look at Couture’s fancy footwork on the dancefloor below.

Over the years I've watched the UFC develop into the powerhouse it is today, organizations like PRIDE, Strikeforce and WEC rise and fall, and Bellator emerge as a new force on the MMA landscape. Throughout it all I've remained captivated by the sport and I'm excited to cover what comes next here on MMA Insight.
