Kim Couture takes it like a man

So Kim Couture got the crap beaten out of her last night:

Though Alessio and Spratt headlined, the main event for most of the Las Vegas fans that attended was the professional debut of hometown favorite Kim Couture. Her opponent, Kim Rose, also made her professional debut on Friday night.

It was Rose that wasted no time establishing herself. As the bout opened, she came storming in with an overhand right that found its mark and crumbled Couture to the canvas. She immediately followed with a flurry of hammer blows, but Couture somehow held on and weathered the storm.

Little did anyone know at the time, Couture not only suffered a broken nose in the exchange, but the bone-crushing overhand right, according to her Xtreme Couture teammate Brice Ritani-Coe, actually split her lower jab bone in the middle of her chin.

As the fight wore on, Rose continued to find her mark with a head-snapping left jab and more solid right hands, leaving Couture’s face a crimson mask at times. Couture wasn’t without her moments, despite the severity of her injuries, executing a couple of fluent leg trips, but was unable to do much offensively to her downed opponent.

In the end, it was Rose that easily dominated the judges’ scorecards, winning her professional debut by unanimous decision.

Kim Couture left the Thomas & Mack Center in an ambulance on Friday night, perhaps battered and broken, but she also left with a fighter’s heart well intact. It may sound odd considering she lost her professional debut, but in the manner that she battled on through her injuries just to finish the fight, she emerged from the shadow of her famous husband to become not Randy Couture’s fighting wife, but Kim Couture, fighter.

Props to Kim for sticking it out and not tapping like a wuss when her nose was broken or her jaw was CRACKED IN FUCKING HALF. As the article said, she showed her mettle and earned the title of “fighter” rather than just “Yoko who convinced Randy to leave the UFC”. It will be interesting to see if she keeps competing after that drubbing or if she hangs up the gloves. Taking that kind of damage in your first pro fight must make you re-think the whole idea of competing at the pro level.

  • Sounds like Randy is going to be soloing it for a while.

  • kentyman says:

    Bisected mandibles make for great blow jobs.

  • Kim “The Predator” Couture

    “actually split her lower jab bone in the middle of her chin.”

    wtf is a JAB bone?

  • fightfan says:

    Jab bone? You know when your giving it to your girl? Your jab bone??

    OK sorry that was beyond bad. Sometimes I think that I am becoming mentally retarded in my 30’s

  • crs says:

    “Sounds like Randy is going to be soloing it for a while.”

    I think he’ll just slip it in while she’s laying down, face covered in ice packs and crying.

    Definitely time for MMA’s milf to hang up the gloves. She’s close to 40 as well, right?

  • crs says:

    ETA, actually I checked and she’s 33. I would have guessed 38. Somebody likes to party.

  • godzillad says:

    OK She’s damn near 40 and been training MMA for like 9 months and she had no base before that. That’s equivilant to someone who played Punchout trying to box, it just doesn’t fly.

  • Throwback says:

    Wow that pretty face was mangled.

  • crs says:

    Coming in contact with Randy’s semen grants you super fighting powers, though.

  • Fred says:

    That’s the most respect I’ve seen Fightlinker show ANYONE in a long time. I agree with Fightlinker that Kim showed a lot of heart and character—-and I’m not a Kim fan. Kim Couture, the fighter, is more appealing than Kim Couture, the fighter’s wife.

  • Roxy says:

    Wow. Geez.

    Is it true she hasn’t been training for that long? I mean, I knew I wanted to do MMA, after I’d been doing Judo for 3 years, BJJ for 3, and kickboxing for over 4. (some, simultaneously), but after making that decision, I still waited a year to prepare myself. Now it seems like people are debuting after less than a year…I think that’s a bad idea. They’re like beginners, and you don’t wanna debut a beginner, right? I mean, I wouldn’t do a kickboxing match just now, because my stand up isn’t that super. I mean, it’s okay for MMA, but not for kickboxing. But if I did, people might watch, and then I’d give female fighters a bad name. -__-;

  • Lifer says:

    she got her ass kicked in that smoker that was on HDnet so this isnt surprising. maybe she needs to QUIT.

  • Beer_tester says:

    Kim took randy from the ufc but Fedor will always be his first real love!! Check it out.

  • Tommy says:

    If she comes back and wins some fights, she can be called, Kim the fighter. Till then she just got beat up. Taking a beating isn’t the only thing you need to be able to do in fighting.

  • crs says:

    Meh, she’s only getting respect because she’s hot (and maybe some misplaced Randy fanboyism.) If an ugly chick took a beating that bad we’d just laugh at her and tell her to hang it up. But because men want to bone her she gets “Wow, the way you took that one-sided beatdown was amazing, Mrs. Couture. You’ve got promise!”

  • ricky says:

    she broke her nose and got her jaw split AND she finished the fight even though she lost.

    Thats a lot more than any guy ragging on her has done.

  • Burtonchik says:

    taking a beating is not honourable, taking a beating and finishing the fight is worth a mention though, it means at least you’re not a giant pussy

    also, how the fuck do these women train w/ these giantly inflated fake boobs?? it just boggles the mind…

  • HAMMER says:

    WHY DOES THIS WOMAN EVEN GET THE SPOTLIGHT?? MMA IS QUICKLY LOOKING MORE AND MORE LIKE BOXING IF NOT WORSE. NO BOXERS I KNOW TRAINED 9 MONTHS AND THEN GOT A PRO FIGHT WITH ALL THIS COVERAGE.. WHAT A JOKE.. SHE MUST HAVE SOME HEART, BUT THE WHOLE THING IS A FARCE. IT SHOWED SHE HAS ONLY BEEN TRAINING 9 MONTHS.. HER FACE CAN VOUCH FOR THAT..

  • HAMMER says:

    NOW THAT WOULD BE A CARD I WOULD WATCH. MILF LEAGUE.. HOT MOMS THAT BANG IN THE RING. WHAT A JOKE. I HOPE LIDDELS NEW WIFE SHAVES HER BEAV BETTER THAN HE DOES HIS GLASS CHIN… AND GOES DOWN AS EASY AS CHUCK.. RAMPAGE DROPPED HIM LIKE A LOOSE SHIT..

  • kentyman says:

    I will not abide your use of caps lock…

  • Kenty i say you drop the HAMMER

  • HAMMER says:

    GIVE ME A BREAK I GOT THUMBED IN THE EYE BY TITO THE TAQUITO. I NEED THE BIG TEXT OR I CANT SEE IT….

  • kentyman says:

    No, really. Please stop using caps lock.

  • HAMMER says:

    Is ThAt BeTtEr?? Kenty its on.. try to drop me… Ding Ding……

  • HAMMER says:

    reverend clit. all you have to offer is kim the predator couture?? wow i have a phonetic boner from your pugilistic insights.. do you like the small letters?? DO LARGE THINGS make you insecure??

  • Jemaleddin says:

    Oh – that was his caps lock? I thought he had turned on the stupid button.

  • HAMMER says:

    JIUJITSU- “ITS ONLY GAY IF YOU MAKE EYE CONTACT”

  • ajadoniz says:

    take that “yoko”! i admit, it would have been easier to make fun of her if she sot to a CAN who sucked less, but i still hold a grudge for what she did. if she stops fighting, she’s still a home wrecker nut case, but if she continues to fight i’ll have to rethink the grudge. it helps that she didnt break down crying after the overhand right.

  • crs says:

    “she broke her nose and got her jaw split AND she finished the fight even though she lost.”

    Wow in the age of Kalib is simply not running away in a fight a new level of personal victory? Sad.

    “Thats a lot more than any guy ragging on her has done.”

    That’s because the guys ragging on her are smart enough not to jump into MMA with only 9 months of any combat training in their entire life just because they’re friends with Gina Carano and shack up with Randy Couture. It’s actually kind of sad when you look at it in that light. “Everybody else I know gets paid to get concussions, why can’t I?!”

    No, I’m not going to respect someone, male or female, experience or no experience, for taking a bad beating where they showed nothing. I could go to Chuck Liddell’s house tonight and pick a fight with him, it wouldn’t make me special after he knocks me out. It would just make me a guy who got KTFO. But I am pretty darn cute so maybe I’d get some hotness sympathy like Kim is getting….

  • Throwback says:

    Can I ask why people get so bothered by caps lock? Honestly what is so annoying about it? In my opinion its not as annoying as some of your worthless rants on here. Seriously people get the sticks out of your ass and chill out. Coming on a MMA website and bitching about caps lock is so pathetic.

  • HAMMER all you got is Reverend Clit? Pretty sad.

    BTW Throwback i don’t really care if you use cap locks but is it really necessary to have whole paragraphs in all caps? Then after a mod asks you not to do it again you still do it.

  • HAMMER says:

    THANKS THROWBACK. BIGGER IS BETTER. I HAVE A SMALL WANKER, SO I MAKE UP FOR IT BY DRIVING A HUMMER AND TYPING IN BOLD TEXT.. OH AND I ALSO WEAR SILLY GOTH TYPE TSHIRTS OR AFFLICTION TSHIRTS COZ IT MAKES ME … WELL…. COOL AND TOUGH… VOMIT…

    MMA IS IN DANGER OF BECOMING A CIRCUS EVEN MORE THAN BOXING IS. KIM COUTURE GETS NATIONAL COVERAGE FOR A PRO FIGHT AND HAS TRAINED 9 MONTHS IN HER LIFE IN MMA??? WOW.. THATS BAD.. IT IS TURNING INTO TOUGHMAN COMPETITIONS ALL OVER AGAIN.. TISK TISK..

  • HAMMER says:

    AM I GOING TO GET BOOTED OFF FOR USING CAPS?? YAHOO YANKED MY POST ON ‘TITO THE TAQUITO’ EVEN THOUGH PEOPLE WERE CALLING HIM BEANER AND WORSE.. AHHHHH.. THE INJUSTICE. FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND CHOICE OF UPPER CASE LETTERS!!!!!!

  • talk all the shit you want, tito is a dirt homo, but at least use normal caps lie the rest of us.

  • HAMMER says:

    ok reverend. i comply with your demand. anyone who agrees that tito is a wanker gets my attention..

  • he’s my least favorite fighter

  • HAMMER says:

    I like his quote,”Me and Dana White are like oil and vinegar”.. Uhhhh. I believe it’s oil and water… He is a moron. Huntington Beach Bad Boy… That is an oxymoron if ever there was one.

  • MrNiceGuyMMA says:

    She is still Yoko

  • Hammer says:

    Yoko grew an impressive rack… Miraculous…..

  • MadMan says:
