Strikeforce Challengers Results: Kerry Vera Puts A Hurting on Kim Couture

Strikeforce Challengers went down in Kansas City last night, and as you can see from the video above, it was not a good night for Kim Couture.  Despite some early success against Kerry Vera, “Sugar Free” got rocked against the cage midway through the first and that was all the opening Vera needed to finish the fight.  The loss drops Couture to 1-2 as a pro, with her only win coming against hapless bystander Lina Kvokov after getting her jaw wrecked by Kim Rose.  Kind of makes you think that maybe taking an interest in your husband’s hobbies is nice, but isn’t enough to base a pro fighting career on. 

In other action, Kevin Casey, the fighter who starred alongside Spencer Pratt in the worst rap video of all time, defeated Chad Vance via submission in the first round.  In the main event, Tyron Woodley remained undefeated with a first-round submission of Rudy Bears.  Full results, and a photo that will make your blood run cold, are after the jump.
