UFC/Randy Couture News & Notes

The 3/3 UFC 68 PPV set a North American MMA attendance record with 19,049 fans present at the the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

Randy Couture said after his main event showdown with Tim Sylvia that he was tired after the second round, but was charged for the fourth and fifth rounds.

The working title of Couture's autobiography is "Becoming the Natural: My blow by blow journey as life's ultimate fighter." There is also talk of doing a Couture movie.

Loretta Hunt, the author of Couture's upcoming book, will be on ESPN Radio tomorrow at 10:30 AM EST as well on "The Herd" with Colin Cowherd.

Hunt and Couture have been working on the book for about a year now, and should be between 200 and 250 pages (including pictures) when published.
