The well-known and highly regarded Mixed Martial Arts fighter is a member of the UFC Hall of Fame. In his 40’s, he is the oldest championship title holder ever and continues to fight in the biggest bouts in the world. And now, Randy “The Natural” Couture is a member of the Full Tilt Poker family.
In November of 2008, it was announced by FullTiltPoker.net that Couture would join the elite group of players known as “Friends of Full Tilt Poker.” The company he will keep includes UFC emcee Bruce Buffer and fellow MMA fighters Mike “Quick” Swick and Matt Hughes, non-fighters like well-known authors Michael Craig and Jim McManus, and television announcer Ali Nejad. As the website boasts, “Some of the biggest names in entertainment and publishing are friends of Full Tilt Poker.”
Couture has long been a poker player and fan of the game. He has hosted numerous charity tournaments by using his name and status in the fighting community to raise funds for worthy causes. And now he joins an online poker community that includes Team Full Tilt and names like Phil Ivey, Howard Lederer, Erick Lindgren, Jennifer Harman, Erik Seidel, Andy Bloch, Gus Hansen, and John Juanda.
