UFC legend Randy Couture rushed into surgery after horror car crash while with girlfriend… year after heart attack
UFC legend Randy Couture was rushed into surgery following a horror crash with his girlfriend Mindy Robinson.
The accident comes after 57-year-old Couture suffered a heart attack during a workout in Los Angeles last October.
TMZ first reported the news of the retired UFC fighter's crash, which occurred on his ranch just outside of Flagstaff, Arizona.
In a tweet, conservative activist and political commentator Mindy, 40, confirmed both her and Couture's injuries.
She wrote: "We had a little accident on the ranch.
"I fractured my transversal processor so I can’t move my lower back, and Randy broke his shoulder and 4 ribs.
"It could have been worse so I’m thankful. Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers."
Couture’s manager Sam Spira, provided the following statement to MMA Junkie: “Randy Couture and his girlfriend Mindy were involved in a Quad accident late last night on his ranch.
"As a result of the accident, later today, Randy will be having some orthopaedic surgery. He (and Mindy) are expected to make a full recovery.”
Couture retired from MMA in 2011, but has remained in the sport.
He featured as a coach on Bellator 'Fight Master' TV show, which aired in 2013.
More recently Couture tried his hand at commentary for Professional Fighters League.
After his heart attack last year, he spent two days in hospital before being discharged.
