Randy CoutureUFC Hall of Famer Randy “The Natural” Couture is one of four coaches on the upcoming season of Fight Master: Bellator MMA.  The Spike TV original series debuts on June 19, and Couture says everything in filming went “fantastic.”

“It’s going to start airing the nineteenth of June on Spike TV.  Everything went fantastic,” Couture told MMAWeekly.com.

Thirty-two welterweight hopefuls will compete for a $100,000 prize and an automatic entry into a future Bellator tournament.

“I was very excited about the level of competition and the level of talent that we had involved in the show.  I was also very pleased with the direction of the show,” said Couture.

“Bertram (van Munster) and Elise (Doganieri) are well-known Emmy-award-winning producers with The Amazing Race, and this is kind of their baby.  I’m excited to see some of the edit and how it comes out,” he said.

Couture coached opposite Chuck Liddell in the debut season of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV in 2006.  In comparison to The Ultimate Fighter, Couture believes Fight Master got it right by focusing on the contestants.

“The focus on the show was definitely on the fighters and giving the fighters a lot of choices to make their own decisions and basically have their fate and their future in their hands.”

Fight Master: Bellator MMA premiers on Wednesday, June 19 on Spike TV with the finale scheduled for Sept. 7.
