It seems like every MMA site you read, people always tend to hate on Kim Couture claiming she’s just riding her hubby’s legendary coattail to weave her way into an MMA career. She lost her first fight against Kim Rose in 2008 but lets get real here, the chick got caught with a zinger in the opening seconds of the first round and then fought 15 minutes with a broken jawbone. That’s right, 15 minutes with a motherfucking broken jawbone. When’s the last time you’ve done something with a broken anything for 15 minutes?
Chick is a soldier. Master-P circa 1996 would have been proud. She came back in her second fight and pwned Lina Kvokov 1:55 minutes in the first round by TKO (ie. fists of friggin fury). Fight happened on Strikeforce by the way, one of the few MMA organizations that let hot chicks in hot pants mount each other. Yum.
You would think that would be enough for Kim to earn a little respect in the MMA world but there are still a parade of clowns that insist Kim Couture is more of a gimmick than an up and coming brawler. She would scheduled to get down with Miesha Tate May 15th on SHO MMA but had to drop out due to marital problems. Look shit happens, you can’t blame her for Randy Couture being the natural…born player. Besides, its a better excuse than Cyborg coming in 30 pounds overweight due to ‘girl problems’. Ugh, I don’t even want to think about that.
