Randy Couture Praises Jon Moxley For Training In His Gym

Randy Couture’s days as a in-cage fighter may be behind him, but the UFC Hall Of Famer is still apart of the MMA world with his MMA gym, allowing celebrities and athletes alike to come learn and train with him.

Recently, Randy said In an interview with that Jon Moxley “assimilated” to the catch-as-catch-can training really well.

He’s in there putting himself in situations not a lot of those guys want to put themselves in a real shoot gym with real catch guys, he was fun to work with because he had a real deep passion for what he was doing. I think he sees the roots of pro wrestling and where they came from, and catch-as-catch-can wrestling, which was a real sport in the early 1900s.
