Quoteworthy:

"In March, Couture came out of retirement and defeated Tim Sylvia to capture his third UFC heavyweight title. Later in the year, Couture successfully defended his title by defeating Gabriel Gonzaga."

Here's more about the award: "Forget those All-America squads. Disregard any All-Pro frivolities. Unlike a simple acknowledgment that an athlete is merely one of the best in his or her own sport, making the All-SportsNation roster means an athlete has what it takes to beat the very best from every sport."
