As if there was not enough star-studded MMA this weekend with Bellator’s massive Philly show on Thursday and UFC 121 with Brock Lesnar VS Cain Velasquez for the UFC heavyweight title on Saturday, fans in the East Coast can also look forward to seeing Kim Couture fight someone making their pro debut!
“Sugar Free” will be in New Jersey this weekend to battle Munah Holland at Ring of Combat 32 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. Kim, whose marriage to Randy Couture made Jim Genia’s list of Top Five Epic Relationship Disasters, continues to use the Couture name despite being divorced for some time. Her opponent, Munah Holland, who fights out of Team Tiger Schulmann, is making her pro debut at this event, while Kim looks to break her 3-3 record with a win over this inexperienced opponent. This fight is one of two women’s fights in ROC on this card, the other being Melissa Bopp, also from Team Tiger Schulmann, taking on Ashley Nee.
Also on the Ring of Combat 32 card is John Cholish vs Rich Moskowitz, Constantinos Philippou vs Marcus Finch, Brendan Barrett vs Randy Smith, and Chris Connor vs Giedrius Karavackas, who you might recognize as the man who won the Bellator tryouts in Philadelphia a few weeks ago. I guess Bellator was unable to find a fight for him after all on their card for this Thursday. You can find more details or buy tickets at the official ROC site.
