Lawsuit targets Ultimate Fighting champion Randy Couture


Ultimate Fighting champ Randy Couture is being sued on allegations that he failed to pay the bill for an event hosted by his organization, Xtreme Couture GI Foundation.

Toast of New York LLC was hired to put on the event held to raise money for military families.

Terry Coffing, the attorney representing Toast of New York, said Couture has only paid $50,000 of his $175,000 bill.

Also, The Associated Press reported today that Couture's wife has won a restraining order against a T-shirt business partner, alleging threats and intimidation.

Kim Couture won the order Wednesday against Affliction Inc. clothing company owner Todd Eugene Beard. She alleges in court documents that Beard has a violent criminal history and engaged in "threatening" actions.

A court spokeswoman said the order restraining Beard from approaching Kim Couture was issued Wednesday by Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Doug Smith.

Kim Couture also asked the judge to prohibit Beard from attending a UFC bout featuring Randy Couture this Saturday at the MGM Grand Garden arena.

A lawyer for Beard didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Beard's business is in Seal Beach, Calif.
