You probably didn’t notice because you were too busy being distracted by the bright lights of UFC 111, but there was another massive MMA event on Saturday, only this one was south of the border. Kim “Sugar Free” Couture – the woman known primarily for being briefly married to a famous MMA fighter, as well as for being hated intensely by many female fighters who made their way up the ranks without appropriating someone else’s famous name or building unintentionally hilarious websites – traveled down to Sonora, Mexico to compete in the Xtreme Fighters Mexico event.
On her Twitter, Couture wrote that her initial opponent “quit” at the last minute and was replaced by Rosa Vizcarra, who weighed ten pounds over the 135-pound limit that Couture had agreed to, but what are you going to do? It’s Mexico, after all. Couture also described being part of a pre-fight parade through the streets of Sonora, and after seeing Kevin Randleman (who ended up in her corner for the fight) sitting on top of a Corona bus waving to the crowd, declared, “This is the Biggest Event Ever!”
It’s possible she got swept up in the moment there and forget that you could probably hire Randleman to make a promotional appearance at a house party for a couple hundred bucks and all the wings he can eat.
As for the actual fight, well, you can probably guess what happened. The late replacement looked a lot like the Mexican Lina Kvokov, and Couture picked her apart with strikes on the feet until a merciful referee called a stop to it.
The first-round TKO victory brings her MMA record to a more respectable 2-2, but it’s worth noting that the first person Couture beat has yet to win a fight, and the most recent one has no official record that we can locate on the internet. That’s not meant to stand as proof that her wins are without value; It’s just meant to strongly suggest that her wins are without value.
