Randy Couture To Lead Charity Poker Run

UFC Legend Works to Raise Money and Awareness for Wounded Soldiers


Couture's Poker Run will be May 7.UFC Hall-of-Famer Randy “The Natural” Couture founded the non-profit Xtreme Couture GI Foundation to help meet the urgent financial needs of wounded soldiers and their families.

Exactly one week after his UFC 129 fight against Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida on April 30, Couture is set to lead the GI Foundation’s next charity effort — a Motorcycle Charity Poker Run on Saturday, May 7. Couture is asking anybody who rides to come down to O School Choppers in Las Vegas and ride alongside him and several other celebrities for the worthy cause. Celebrities expected to ride include Jason Statham and Mickey Rourke, who starred along Couture in “The Expendables”, actor Kevin James, NFL reporter Jay Glazer, Illusionist Chris Angel, and several other MMA familiars and notable actors.

In the poker run format, the motorcyclists will ride to different checkpoints and draw a card at each. Whoever ends the run with the best five-card poker hand is the winner. The prize pool will include cash, signed memorabilia, Xtreme Couture clothing, an Affliction leather Jacket and much more.

Riders can sign up for the event on May 7 at O School Choppers. Registration starts at 9 a.m. that morning, and it’s $25 per rider and $10 per passenger. Couture’s group will hit the road at 10 a.m. For more information, visit
