It's about time! This is a big deal, I'll be keeping my eye on Sonnen, Catch has SO much to offer to wrestlers. I'm amazed that Couture is just now working catch wrestling.

Couture has always been a catch wrestler style imo.

Handy has always had Neil Melanson as his trainer, hell, he has been at Xtreme Couture forever.

One of the best catch wrestlers around.

Ok, I always hear the term "catch wrestling" thrown around. What exactly is the difference between catch and regular wrestling?

I hope Chael is just practicing a lot of sub defense.

"Catch wrestling is a style of Folk wrestling made popular in the late 19th century by the wrestlers of traveling carnivals who incorporated submission holds, or "hooks", into their wrestling to increase their effectiveness against their opponents. The style derives from a number of influences, most significantly the regional styles of Europe such as English Lancashire wrestling and the Irish Collar-and-elbow, and styles of the Indian subcontinent such as Pehlwani and Iranian styles such as Varzesh-e Pahlavani. The training of some modern submission wrestlers are founded in Catch wrestling."
