Put your costumes away, guys. Randy Couture just won Halloween.
The UFC Hall of Famer dressed up as one of his biggest rivals — Chuck Liddell. The pictures were all over social media this weekend and it was wondrous.
The best part? Couture told TMZ that he didn’t just get Liddell’s approval to wear the costume, Liddell actually sent him a pair of shorts and gloves.

How awesome is that?
"The Natural" was spotted with his girlfriend Mindy Robinson outside a celebrity Halloween party in Los Angeles. Robinson, looking rather lovely, was dressed as a UFC Octagon girl. There were no actual UFC markings on either of them, though, because Couture and UFC president Dana White are not exactly on speaking terms at this point.
Couture and Liddell, though, are apparently still cool. The two are arguably the biggest stars in UFC history and had one of the best rivalries in MMA back in the day. Couture beat Liddell by TKO at UFC 43 in June 2003, but Liddell got revenge — twice. He knocked out Couture at UFC 52 in April 2005 and then again at UFC 57 in February 2006.
We miss that trilogy. All those bouts were for the UFC light heavyweight title. But Couture’s homage to "The Iceman" begs the question: Who’s dressing up like Tito Ortiz? Have there been any purchases of a huge, inflatable head recently? This is information we need to know.
