The first episode of the four-part documentary series detailing Randy Couture's life and MMA career will air on Saturday, March 20, at 2:30 PM ET on ESPN.

"The Randy Couture Story," produced by the Professional Fighters League (PFL) and presented by Geico, highlights the remarkable journey of 'The Natural', one of the greatest fighters of all time.

Randy Couture achieved great success in the UFC, becoming a six-time UFC heavyweight champion and Hall of Famer during his career in the promotion.

As soon as the first episode premiers on ESPN, the entire series content will become available on-demand exclusively on ESPN+.

The documentary will focus on the key moments of Randy Couture's life and career, giving the audience an in-depth view of his subsequent ventures after retiring from competing in mixed martial arts.

In addition to The Natural's involvement with the PFL through commentating, the four-part series will also examine his career as a Hollywood actor and other endeavours beyond the cage.

"It's an awesome feeling to have my own documentary series chronicling my journey as an MMA athlete and everything I've done outside of the cage," said Randy Couture. "The PFL is a global fighter-first organisation, and I wholeheartedly believe in the format and everything they are doing as a leader in the sport. I've been through so much in my life, and I know how hard the PFL team has worked on this series. I can't wait to watch it – it's going to be special," continued Randy Couture.

MMA legend Chuck Liddell, Hollywood star Chris Pratt, American sportswriter Jay Glaze, and former referee John McCarthy are some of the names set to feature in the documentary, where they will provide their insights on Randy Couture.

Combat sports fans will be provided with a comprehensive review of the former MMA champion's rise from his underdog days to achieving worldwide success and cementing his legacy, promoting mixed martial arts as a global mainstream sport.

"It was a privilege for the PFL to produce 'The Randy Couture Story', as he is an MMA legend, a true champion and an incredible person who inspired so many, as viewers of this series on ESPN will see," said PFL CEO Peter Murray. "Randy defined the sport of MMA, and we are proud to have him as part of the PFL family," Murray continued.
