Couture is an Olympic wrestler, as well as one of the UFC’s greatest fighters. He won titles multiple times, across multiple divisions. Moreover, he did so at a much older age than most other competitors.

He was able to notice that there was something wrong and admitted himself into an L.A. hospital. Here, it was discovered what happened, and he was put into intensive care.

This was certainly a serious scare for Couture. It was lucky that he was able to spot the issue quickly and work to get it taken care of. Nevertheless, this is still some troubling news for the former champ.
