Kim Couture Pulls Out of Strikeforce Bout Against Miesha Tate; Marital Problems to Blame?

(Well, at least now they’ll have to make a new poster where Miesha’s name is spelled correctly. Image courtesy of

Friends and fans of Miesha Tate were in for a shock yesterday when this bulletin notice was sent out from Tate’s Myspace page:

Date: Apr 28, 2009 7:32 PM
Subject: Kim pulls out…..
Body: So Kim "SugarFree" Couture is pulling out of the fight supposedly cuz her and Randy are getting a divorce………..I’m so pissed right now……Sugar Free my ass!!

Though Tate’s camp confirmed to PRO MMA that her May 15th Strikeforce Challengers bout against Couture had been scrapped, Miesha later took to Sherdog to back off her claim that Randy was headed for his third epic marriage fail:

So I misunderstood about what I had previously stated, I have a few friends that train at Extreme Couture one of which told me Randy and Kim were having issues and then she backed out of the fight on me and I was VERY upset because most of you know this fight meant the world to me, it was my big break and I was really upset when I found out and jumped to conclusions. My apologies to Randy and Kim, When I wrote about them I meant no ill intentions and didn’t mean to blast their personal life, I was just focused on the fact I wasn’t going to get the fight. I forget how famous they are and didn’t even think how that might effect them and their personal life which was immature and stress my apology to them and who ever else it may concern

There’s been no official statement from Strikeforce or the Coutures yet — but my God, with Randy preparing for Big Nog in August, he needs this shit like he needs a hole in the head.

Kim Couture (1-1) and Miesha Tate (6-1) were both slated to make their second appearance under the Strikeforce banner. Couture most recently beat the crap out of a woefully unprepared Lina Kvokov at "Strikeforce: Destruction" last November, while Tate has been on a five-fight win-streak since getting KO’d by Kaitlin Young in November 2007.

I'm sensing a little (not so) undercover racism. So what if she is black, latino, or not so hot in your eyes. he liked something about her enough to marry her. Now he sees something that makes him want to divorce her. 3 divorces kind of narrows down who is the problem in marriages. I love Randy for what he has done for the sport, but I (like most of you) know nothing of how he is in his personal life. For the record though. I don't think Kim is such a bad looking woman, and that hairstyle is worn by lots of woman fighters. Who wants hair flopping into their eyes in a fight? Lastly, lots of times the women's mma is more exciting than the men, because they have something to prove and the rounds are usually shorter.

Why does Kim Couture look like Halle Berry on the banner?

i would have too. look at that hair.
I mean why bang kim when you can bang Gina Carano.
You know that's why he dumped her. He has to be banging Gina.

No, Richard. I obviously didn't read the title or the contents of this thread. I just didn't know that Kim Couture was black!

I think its time for a name change for little Kim. I'm thinking instead of "sugar free" How about Kim "From the Block" thanks to her ghetto fabulous hair styling. I didn't know Randy had a thing for Latinos!

Kim is a complete butterface, thats it.. and thats still pushing it

How to go from dyed blonde white chick to braided haired black chick.

Its almost as impressive as Cristiane Santos becoming Mr. Cyborg Santos. (I think she competes both as a man and woman under that name. I've checked some Cyborg Santos videos and she looks more like a dude... although fruitier.)

Kim's ultimate revenge on Randy would be to hook up with Rashad Evans and change her nickname to "Full o' Sugar".

Does this mean Kim's 15 minutes of fame are over?

LMAO @ Richard Wad - "Should be a good fight" - dumbass... did you even read this?
Andre's Pee Pee- April 29, 2009 at 8:10 pm
She looks like a mexican Shenaenae. I'd dump that bitch to and get a broad that speaks english and not ebonics. Everytime I see her I am trying to find the hotness. I am sad to report, it's just not there.

Kim looks like a black chick in that picture. Not that she ever looks good anyways.
Ken Shamrock- April 29, 2009 at 1:47 pm
Kim's leaving Randy because she want's to be with a real man.
Harry Seaward- April 29, 2009 at 1:45 pm
Miesha would GNP Kim to death. Now Kim is getting all kinds of pub and support without having to fight Tate. Hmmm, sounds a lil fishy.
Richard Wad- April 29, 2009 at 12:44 pm
I had no idea Kim Couture was black...
Should be a good fight!
RED- April 29, 2009 at 11:32 am
I figured she was pulling out because Randy forgot to.
Sneaky Pete- April 29, 2009 at 11:20 am
People, PEOPLE! I think we're all missing the point of this article; namely that Miesha is smoking hot and she wants me something terrible.

Lol @ Boober btw

Whores are only fun to watch fight on the street. I like to see the hair pullin, and the tit floppage. Get em the hell out of MMA!
Kim "Sugar Free" Couture- April 29, 2009 at 9:59 am
I'm leaving Randy because I'd rather play with Gina's huge tits than look at Randy's wrinkled up nut sack.
