Well-known UFC champion at local event

If you know who Randy "The Natural" Couture is, then Morro Bay is the place to be on Sunday night.

Couture, a former UFC champion, arrived on motorcycle for the XTREME Heroes Party in Morro Bay.

Tickets are $20 for the event, which lasts until 10 p.m. on Market Street.

Events include UAL world class arm wrestling and CrossFit Inferno competitions, and a special toast to troops.

Couture served in the U.S. Army from 1982 to 1988.

He says, "Now guys who are in uniform are obviously on the front lines and making huge sacrifices both in time away from their families and, some of them, more significant sacrifices in the loss of limb and some of them loss of life, so I think appreciating those soldiers and those folks that are, in lot of ways, representing our democratic ways of life, is pretty important."

All proceeds from today's event will go to Wounded Warriors.
