Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  Randy Couture, the most decorated fighter and champion in UFC history and acknowledged by many to be the greatest fighter in the sport of mixed martial arts, is revered by champions and fans alike. Couture has been able to parlay himself from the Octagon into Hollywood, landing major roles in Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables I and II, and has become a prominent athlete-turnedactor working alongside some of Hollywood's major players. This unique book chronicles the final steps of a champion. As Couture prepares for his final competition, he reflects on his 27 years as an athlete and competitor. His thoughts are paired with exclusive photographs shot by long-time friend and photographer Sara Levin. The Last Round is a visual exploration into the world of a combat sports athlete. The serendipitous nature of the Holga camera and the film technique characteristically reflect the element of fortune that has pervaded Couture's journey into MMA and his continued success. The imperfections and unpredictable results of the photographic process capture the brutal reality of Couture's journey. The Last Round is an intriguing and unprecedented approach to documenting the journey of a hero's final battle.The candid style and intimacy engage and connect the viewer. Couture is arguably one of the most prolific and adulated fighters to have ever emerged in combat sports in recent times. If you're a fan of Randy Couture, UFC, MMA or combat sports, you will not be disappointed. This book is a must for any enthusiast and fan of combat sports.
