Next will be fellow New Zealand import Brice Ritani-Coe.  The standout boxer will face Roland Sanchez in a Superheavyweight attraction on the Katana Cagefighting Conquest event in Robsville, Texas.  Coming off of the grueling experience of helping Randy Couture train for his fight with Brock Lesnar, Brice will be looking to try out some new tricks as he squares off against the 360lb Sanchez.

Xtreme Couture’s Jay White went Hollywood last weekend. Jay will be appearing alongside Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in an upcoming Nike commercial. The details of the commercial titled “Human Chain” are unknown to us at this time. But we’re told it will feature MMA training and/or fighting.

Heavyweight Jay White returns to the cage on Saturday December 15th at the American Airlines Arena in Dallas on the HDNet Fights show. He’ll be taking on Patrick Castillo.

Jay is chomping at the bit to get back in the cage. His last fight was on St Patrick’s Day in 2006.

Jay came down from Oregon to train with Randy for 2 weeks before the Gonzaga fight and ended up staying. He spent his summer serving as a stand-in for Gabriel Gonzaga and rolling with The Natural everyday. He also helped Phil Friedman get ready for his pro debut and trained with James “Colossus” Thompson, Forrest Griffin and Kimbo.

Now that he is settled in with a good, positive team situation he’s ready to make his mark on the HDNet Fights show.

The Xtreme Couture gym is buzzing with fighters gearing up for high profile fights.

Jay Hieron and Chris Horodecki are gearing up for the IFL Grand Prix. Jay fights Pat Healy and Chris has a heavily anticipated rematch with Bart Palaszewski.

Mike Pyle is getting set for Jake Shields in Elite XC on Nov 10th.

Karo Parisyan is readying for a replacement for Hector Lombard. Karo is slated to fight at UFC 78 in New Jersey Nov 17th.

Stephan Bonnar is also in the gym, he faces Eric Schafer at UFC 76 in Cincinatti on Oct 20th.

Josh Haynes just left for Stockton, CA where he fights Steve Heath this Saturday.

Jay White is prepping for his comeback to the cage on Nov 3rd against Corey Salter in Austin, TX.

Wanderlei is going to fight someone on December 29th in Vegas.  Though rumors are flying, we can’t say who yet.

The Xtreme Couture Team went 11-0 in the month of September. We’re hoping through hard work and dedication to keep the momentum going through October and November.

Former Marine and MMA fighter Jay White just joined the team. Jay came to Vegas to help Randy get ready for Gonzaga. Turns out he likes Sin City and Team Couture so much he decided to stay.

Jay has an extensive Jiu Jitsu background including a Purple Belt under Renzo Gracie. He’d likely be a black belt by now but he left New York to be the Jiu Jitsu coach at Team Quest. It’s a long time since any of those guys were submitted in a fight. Jay also used to be a close combat instructor in the Marine Corps.

You can take advantage of Jay’s wealth of knowledge Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11am-noon. That’s when he’ll be teaching Beginner Jiu Jitsu. He’s also available for privates.
