He was a two-time NCAA runner-up and three-time All-American at Oklahoma State

FIGHTER a documentary
Few sports have been as misunderstood as Reality Fighting. Known by a variety of names - Mixed Martial Arts, Ultimate, Shooto, No Holds Barred - Reality provides the opportunity for athletes of mixed disciplines to compete one on one with no limits on style or technique.

With unprecedented access behind the scenes, FIGHTER takes an irreverent yet brutally honest look at the world of Reality fighters from their own perspective, through tournaments, training, and daily lives.

Analysis by World Cup gold medalist and training guru Rico Chiapparelli of what makes a great fighter to a first-hand look at what it's like to step into the octagon for the first time, FIGHTER deftly captures the skill, dedication, rivalry, camaraderie, and tremendous mutual respect.

FIGHTER captures the slice of time and everything in it as Randy "The Natural" Couture trains, travels to Japan and ultimately wins his first UFC World Title.
