LDW2012 photos: Ryan Couture celebrates his 30th birthday at Tabu
By Don Chareunsy
MMA star Ryan Couture celebrated his 30th birthday at Tabu Ultra Lounge in MGM Grand on Friday night after dining at nearby Fiamma Trattoria & Bar with his father retired UFC legend Randy Couture and a group of friends.
Birthday boy Couture, in jeans and a plaid shirt, walked the arrivals carpet just before midnight outside Tabu with his father and friends, including Kevin Hoyt, the founder of “It Ain’t Chemo.” They posed for photographs with two painted women, one representing the “It Ain’t Chemo” tree of life symbol and the other Xtreme Couture.
After taking a few photographs and saying hello to friends including UFC lightweight fighter Gray Maynard en route to a VIP area, Couture then made his way to the DJ booth as DJ Eric Forbes announced his arrival. Couture was presented with a birthday cake in the shape of the MMA Octagon, and the birthday group partied into the early hours of the morning.
Thanks to contributing photographer Bryan Steffy of WireImage for his photo gallery of the birthday celebration.
