Randy Couture's manager and lawyer Sam Spira.issued the following:

“Randy experienced discomfort in what he initially thought was an offset rib or vertebrae.  (Randy) tried working on a roller to relieve the problem - but that was not successful. Incredibly, Randy finished the entire workout while likely having the beginnings of a heart attack. Shortly thereafter, he drove home and attempted to rest. When the radiating chest pain did not cease, he recognized something was wrong.   He proceeded to walk multiple blocks to a nearby emergency room rather than battle Los Angeles traffic. Upon his arrival, after an EKG, the medical staff informed Randy he had a heart attack, and would require immediate surgery to resolve the issue.”

Couture released a statement:

“Contrary to recent rumors I have not kicked the bucket, yet. I am alive and well.  Special thanks to the amazing staff at Cedars Sinai Hospital. From the ER to cardiac, icu thanks for taking care of me. Thanks to all you out there expressing your concern. Your love and support mean the world to me and my family.  Live your lives to the fullest. You never know when you’ll draw that last breath in!”
