Chris Pratt Holds His Own Grappling Against UFC Legend Randy Couture [Video]
Chris Pratt is no stranger to wrestling and it shows as he grapples with Randy Couture.
Okay, honestly, Couture could probably take him down at any moment, but Chris Pratt's grappling skills definitely show!
He actually spent a lot of time and actually wrestled in college. That's where he first met Randy Couture, before he became the six-time UFC champion. Pratt's Instagram post explains their past and present.
A couple weeks ago I had the great privilege of training with UFC Hall of Famer Randy “the Natural” Couture @xcnatch at #unbreakable in Hollywood. Luckily he took it very easy on me.
Randy first coached me when I was 17 at Oregon State University wrestling camp. After a greco roman training session consisting of throws he invited teenage me to come up and demonstrate the three throws we’d learned that day: the underarm spin, lateral drop and head and arm. It was such an honor. Everyone cheered as I slammed Coach Couture to his back. Not once, not twice… but three times.
A few years later I was one of millions watching on TV as Randy entered The Octagon for the first time and dominated, eventually winning and defending the heavyweight title for years. He is a Pacific Northwest native and all around great dude. Gotta love the wrestlers mentality and work ethic. It’s a great sport which helped keep me out of trouble when I was younger and taught me to grind. I’ve always said it, wrestling made me who I am today. I dedicated years of my life to grappling. I still love it.
Here's the grapple session:
