Meet Coach Tim Lane

Coach Tim Lane heads the boxing and kickboxing classes at Xtreme Couture here in Las Vegas, NV. He is a former world champion in the sport of kickboxing, having earned that accolade in 2002. The path to greatness, however, was not always endearing.


Lane moved from his home in Virginia to New York City to pursue his dream of fighting at age 26, with next to nothing in his name. As an up-and-coming-fighter, Tim would spend sleepless nights looking for shelter behind the gym he trained at, just so he could be one of the first ones in the door in the morning.

The hard work and dedication paid off in 2001, when Tim won his first international title over English champion Gary Wilson, via body shot, in Times Square, NY. The following year, “Bring the Pain” won his world USKBA title via fourth-round knockout of Marco “Baby Face” Siez, again by body shot.

Striking has long been a staple in Lane’s career, but what most don’t know is that Lane originally got his start in Martial Arts by enrolling in Judo classes. Not only is he a world-renowned stand-up coach, he is also well-versed in other aspects of Mixed Martial Arts.


Coaching at Xtreme Couture, Lane teaches many things, but his main purpose is preaching defense. “A good fighter never gets hit,” said Lane. “If you can avoid punches, your chances of winning increase.”

Whether you’re looking to become a world champion, want to learn how to defend yourself, or are just looking for a good workout, Lane treats every student with an equal amount of attention and dedication. “I want you to be happy and feel good,” Lane said. “If you don’t feel good today, I want you to come in class and I’ll help you feel good.”


There is NO doubt about Ryan Couture as an elite MMA fighter that holds his own winning four in a row and his professional MMA record is now 6-1. The future is looking very bright indeed for Couture.

Part of his success is backed by an amazing group of coaches at Xtreme Couture like (Neil Melanson – Head Grappling Coach, Dennis Davis – Pro Team & MMA Coach, Tim Lane – Striking Coach and Jake Bonacci – Strength & Conditioning Coach).
Ryan controlled the pace of the fight all 3 rounds with good movement, quick hands and even a spinning back kick planted to the chest of Noons in the first. The only chance Noons seemed to have in this fight was in the second, but the conditioning and the Couture inside was not going to be stopped. Ryan finished the fight in a very active and aggressive pace with knees to KJs ribs and excellent striking that made round 3 easily Couture’s.

This is what Randy Couture said this about the fight.

“Great job by Ryan tonight !! Very happy with his performance . Tough fight but we knew that going in . KJ is a great striker and hard to take down ! I’am confident Ryan won the 1st and the 3rd rounds ! It was a great fight and fun to watch . Very proud of the grit, determination and growth that Ryan displayed tonight.”

The Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation, was founded by Randy Couture to honor the veterans of America’s Armed Forces. The foundation was especially formed to raise money and awareness for those wounded in action and their families. To date, more than 24,000 U.S. troops have been wounded in the war against terrorism, which doesn’t include the many more suffering the mental effects.

Many of the injuries are traumatic amputations, gunshot wounds, burns and blast injuries that will retire these brave men and woman from the armed forces. Even though some of these men and woman are severely injured, they have the courage, strength and determination to win this battle.

The Xtreme Couture G.I. Foundation’s goal is to help these brave men and women fulfill any of their unmet needs as they return back to civilian life.
