Three weeks, and you’re out – that is, if you’re UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture.
Couture and partner Karina Smirnoff were eliminated from “Dancing with the Stars” Monday after just the third week of competition. They were on the bubble after receiving the lowest combined scores and fan votes following their performances in Week 2.
Had they survived yesterday’s elimination, they likely wouldn’t have advanced much further because their Paso Doble last night was met with a 26 out of 40 score from the judges.
Couture is the second former UFC star to show off their fancy feet on ABC’s hit show. Chuck Liddell was booted after just four weeks on the show’s ninth season back in 2009.
Perhaps the worst part about Couture exiting DWTS is that we will no longer see Smirnoff strut her stuff. So, let’s pour out a little liquor for that.
