Strikeforce confirms Kim Couture’s withdrawl from May 15 ShoMMA event


Strikeforce female fighter Miesha Tate recently revealed on her MySpace page that her planned fight with Kim Couture set for a ShoMMA event on May 15 at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif. has been called off after Couture elected to withdraw from the fight.

In response to the blog entry, FiveOuncesOfPain.com contacted Strikeforce Vice President of Communications Mike Afromowitz, who confirmed that Couture, the wife of former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Randy Couture, is indeed off the card.

An official reason for Couture dropping off the card is not currently available, although Tate is claiming that Couture is not fighting due to marital problems.

“So Kim ‘Sugar Free’ Couture is pulling out of the fight supposedly cuz [sic] her and Randy are getting a divorce… I’m so pissed right now… Sugar Free my ass!!,” wrote Tate.

It is uncertain whether Tate’s claims are valid, however, sources have informed Five Ounces of Pain in recent weeks that the Coutures have been living separately as of late.

In regards to Tate’s status for the May 15 show, no word is available regarding a potential replacement.
