Couture vs. Vera Part II Goes to Kerry Vera
Most MMA fans are aware that Randy Couture was victorious a few weeks back against Brandon Vera in a controversial decision at UFC 105. What most didn’t know was that there has been a second Couture vs. Vera fight which took place less than a week later.
We probably should mention, however, that the second match was between Kim Couture and Kerry Vera, two women who pack equally heavy punches. Kim, the former wife of Randy Couture, and Kerry, the current wife of Brandon Vera, exchanged blows during their Strikeforce Challengers bout in Kansas City on Friday, providing just as much entertainment as their mates (or in Kim’s case, former mate) did in London, England only days earlier.
The two came out punching, but in the end it was Kerry who finished the fight with a flurry of vicious punches at 3:35 of the first round, avenging her husband’s defeat from the previous weekend. She did not want it to go to the judges’ scorecards and possibly suffer the same fate as Brandon. Her fists made sure that didn’t happen.
With Vera proving that she is a force to be reckoned with, and the likes of Fedor Emelianenko and Cris “Cyborg” Santos already establishing themselves as elite level MMA fighters, Strikeforce is quickly putting together a strong stable of fighters going forward.
Here is a look at the fight.
