Yesterday [Apr. 28] Randy Couture served his wife of over two years, Kim Couture, with divorce papers. The news was a shock to those close to the couple and even more to Kim, who pulled out of her televised main event fight due to the devastating news. This marks Randy's third divorce.

Assuming this is legit, Randy seems to have a problem with commitments, we've seen it with his UFC contract and his marriages. Dudes still a legend but this is ridiculous, 3 divorces? No offense but I feel bad for the next woman that comes into his life.

The guy is just a normal person like you and me,and he has personal problems just like everyone else.It's hard to keep a marriage together.Just because you are a super nice guy doesn't mean you can make a marriage work.

I won't judge the man based on his private love life.I sure as hell wouldn't want to be judged on mine,and I'm assuming no one else here would want to be either.

Uhh who was judging? the guy has problems with commitments, which is what marriage is, a commitment, and why marriage is so taboo these days because 50-60% of ppl get divorced now. A lot of ppl cant do it, never said it made him a bad person. Oh and after two failed marriages you gotta know its not for you, I have no sympathy in that regard, I feel bad for Kim for being blindsided by all this, as it says, nobody expected this.

No-offence. What do know about Randy's personal life?
You are assuming alot here. The fact is, nobody knows what really goes on between a man and wife apart from themselves.

If you want to judge him, judge him as a fighter, not as a person.

I can now say openly, without fear of Randy hunting me down and beating me to death: I f***ing hated kim couture. Actually I said that all of the time when they were still together. lol.

Something about her was always off IMO. When she started fighting MMA it really made me dislike her. Mark my words- I guarantee you she will never fight again.

I get what you're saying but again, I'm not trying to judge the guy at all since I cant, I dont know him well enough to try and give him advice. I see you chose to only quote parts you wanted so I'll say this to put it in perspective, if someone gets divorced 3 times, usually they're the problem. Maybe he has a bad taste in women or picks the wrong ones, either way I never disrespected the guys accomplishments. You have to expect that someones gonna ask themself just how committed he is to the committments he makes? and its not an unreasonable question.

EDIT: apparently I havnt made myself clear in the last 2-3 posts, I am not calling his character into question. I'm simply percieving how he handles his committments, he knew the risks of getting married, 3 different times. I still have no sympathy for wife jumpers or just people who cant stay with one person. I would do anything for a chance at true love and people throw that away everyday. I pity Randy more than anything.

I don't know if I Could call whether he has problems with committment or not. Sometimes problems with committment can be remaining committed to a relationship that is damaging to yourself, that person, or others. Sometimes problems of committment are that you quit too soon when it gets rough.

No offense, but how the heck would you know which is which?

We have no clue as to why this is happening...and quite frankly, it's none of our business. I just feel sad for both since at one point, they obviously both loved each other. Divorce is rarely a cool thing for either side.

Its his fourth if you count the UFC split, but i guess that counts as reconciled

The truth is none of us have a clue why Randy filed for divorce the 1st or 3rd time. I cant say I'm sad about this because something about Kim always felt wrong to me. But if this is what Randy feels is best for him then so be it. It doesn't affect me as a fan in any way.

Didn't read it in-depth but it sounded like it could've had something to do with Kim & the business not getting along well or something along those lines.
