It appears Strikeforce lightweight Ryan Couture will look to bounce back from his first taste of defeat next month as part of the lineup for Strikeforce Challengers 19. “Natural Light,” a play on dad Randy Couture’s nickname, was outpointed in June by undefeated prospect Matt Ricehouse after winning his first two fights as a professional.
Though no opponent has been lined up yet for the 155er, who turns 29 later this month, Couture’s involvement on the card was reported by MMAJunkie.
Assuming things go as planned the show will mark the fourth Challengers event for Couture since his MMA debut a little less than a year ago. Prior to his stumble against Ricehouse, Couture had choked out Lucas Stark and Lee Higgins.
