    In an article with the Boston Herald yesterday, UFC president Mr. Pay Attention To Me let the figurative “cat out of the bag.”

    Randy Couture will appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine by this summer, the first mixed martial artist to ever do so for the prestigious periodical.

    Newly-crowned UFC Heavyweight Champion Couture had met with SI’s editor in New York City a few days after this stunning March 3 performance against Tim Sylvia at UFC 68 in Columbus, Ohio. But true to the humble fighter’s form, he has kept quiet about the pending accolade.

    “It’s an honor for me to be the first athlete in the sport to grace the cover of Sports Illustrated,” said four-time Olympic wrestling alternate Couture today. “ It was not something I ever really fathomed for myself.”

    Probably because Dana knows the Chuck story isn't going to end well...he wants the posterboy to be a stand-up guy, not someone who regularly does interviews while drunk

    He is just a couple of losses away from being the next Tito Ortiz. Hopefully it starts with Rampage.

    I didn't click the link, so maybe it's there, but when is this supposed to come out? It's going to be framed and hung up in my office.

    I bet he ends up more like Mark Kerr than Tito.
