Kim Couture, the wife of former UFC heavyweight and light heavyweight champion Randy Couture, has been booked to fight on the May 16 Strikeforce card is scheduled to take place in the Seattle area.
AOL’s MMA Fanhouse reported the news based upon statements made by Couture herself on HDNet’s Inside MMA. No opponent has been announced thus far.
Couture is 1-1 in her short career and is more known for helping run the Xtreme Couture empire rather than being a fighter. Her last fight took place during a November Strikeforce event against Lina Kvokov. It was clear from the start that Kvokov wanted nothing to do with Couture, as Couture won easily via first round TKO.
Couture lost her debut in June of 2008 on a Banner Promotions event in Las Vegas that featured both MMA and boxing on the same card. She was battered and bloodied by Kim Rose but was able to continue fighting despite having suffered a broken jaw.
Also scheduled for the Strikeforce event in May is a main event pitting two former EliteXC champions against each, as former middleweight champion Robbie Lawler takes on former welterweight champion Jake Shields.
