In Case the Numbers Didn't Work For You
The link to sherdog is good, but the numbers and types of wins don't mean alot. If you really want to learn about Couture you should watck some of his fights, but here's a quick rundown on his style:
He's a Greco-Roman wrestler and he specializes in hard slams and ground and pound.
At the beginning of his carreer he fought with a strict groundnpound philosophy until he joined the UFC and found that he needed to expand.
He developed a jiu-jitsu backround at first and one a couple of fights with submissions, but for the most part he won but decisions or KO with groundnpound.
Then he took on boxing when he started his series of fights with Chuck Liddell. He was, however, unable to beat Liddell standing up and lost Couture v. Liddell 3 and he retired afterwords.
But why did i mention that, you posted this before UFC 59... That's probably why you were asking.
