UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture and his girlfriend Mindy Robinson are expected to make a full recovery after sustaining injuries in a quad bike accident on Monday, according to a report from TMZ that was later confirmed by MMA Junkie.
The accident occurred at nighttime on the property of Couture’s Arizona ranch. Couture’s manager told MMA Junkie that Couture would be having orthopedic surgery as a result of the accident, and Robinson shared a tweet detailing the extent of the injuries:
We had a little accident on the ranch. 😬— Mindy Robinson 🇺🇸 (@iheartmindy) September 8, 2020
I fractured my transversal processor so I can’t move my lower back, and Randy broke his shoulder and 4 ribs.
It could have been worse so I’m thankful. Thank you all for the thoughts and prayers.🙏🏻#RedneckLife https://t.co/3VoiJlYBHI
Couture isn’t the only UFC veteran to have had a scary incident on a quad bike recently — current UFC fighter Derrick Lewis also had a scary incident on his vehicle with his son in the front yard, though thankfully, no one was injured.
