UFN 20: COUTURE talks UFN 20, Maynard and Tony Halme

So basically Randy's first opponent Tony "The Viking" Halme was found dead in his home 10th january in Helsinki, Finland. In the interview Randy talks about Halme and UFN 20 (mainly Maynard's fight):


For those unfamiliar with Halme, other than being Randy's first opponent in ufc you might remember him from his Pro wrestling days from WWF under the name "Ludvig Borga". On top of that in his relatively short life he was a Finnish HW champion in Boxing, a member of the Finnish Parliament (representing the True Finns party), a gladiator in Finnish version of the "American gladiators", a "singer" (pretty bad one ), an author of 4 books and last but not least an actor. You can for example notice him playing a small role in "Die Hard: With a Vengeance".

RIP Tony.

RIP Ludvig.

Had to laugh at the reporter ripping on Randy's appearance, lol. And I kind of like the idea of Griffin vs. Maynard... might be something to ponder if the two are indeed willing to fight. Good little interview. Thanks for sharing.

I am interested in Maynard/Griffin as well. I would definitely be pulling for Griffin though.

Yeah I got Tyson winning it too. Although Gray handled Nate's reach advantage pretty well and I think Gray actually has small one against Tyson if I remember right. However Tyson's standup has improved alot and has become more and more explosive and unpredictable.
Basically I have already said that I see Tyson as future contender and potential champ in 2-3 years, so I too would be pulling for him against Gray.
I hope Tyson doesn't go for the title too soon though and fights top 5 guys who aren't Penn instead, because he has plenty of time to prepare for Penn still with no need to rush. Gray ws smart not going for the shot yet either.
