Randy Couture and 'Dancing with the Stars?'

UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture will make a guest appearance on an upcoming episode of the ABC program, "Dancing with the Stars," according to

Talk about random.

Here's the snip:

"Recently re-anointed UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture knows no boundaries. The soft-spoken role model for mixed martial arts will get a visit from 'Dancing With The Stars' entry Leeza Gibbons this Friday at his Legends Gym in Los Angeles.

Ms. Entertainment Tonight narrowly escaped elimination on Tuesday night's results show, though she scored well with the judges, so expect 'the Natural' to impart some of his mental strategy to the hapless hoofer, all for the DWTS cameras.

The segment, which could get 23 million viewers, will air Monday or Tuesday."

I don't really understand the reason Gibbons would visit Couture because on the surface it seems like an bizarre connection -- that information will most likely be revealed during the episode.

Regardless, that's insane exposure.
