world including the many of the best from Oregon for a legendary night of one on one combat.

 

After winning the silver medal in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney in Greco Roman Wrestling and a world silver

medal in 2001, Lindland teamed up with Couture, who is a three-time UFC and national wrestling champion
