Ryan Couture has no regrets (other than losing)

Ryan Couture has no regrets (other than losing)

One of the first victims of this latest round of fighter cuts was Ryan Couture, who has gone 0-2 since Strikeforce folded into the UFC. Many wondered how the breakup went considering the bad blood between UFC prez Dana White and Ryan’s father Randy, but it sounds like Ryan is cool with how things unfolded:

“I don’t regret the approach we took. I still don’t feel a need to be on anyone’s [expletive] list,” Ryan says with a chuckle.“Besides, with dad’s schedule and how often he has to be out of town, even the country, there’s no guarantee he would have been able to make my fights anyway. So, it might have been a fight for no reason.”

Couture didn’t personally get another call from White to share the bad news of his release but Ryan says he wasn’t surprised at being cut.

“My manager got a call from Joe Silva who told him that they liked me and the way I did things but that they have a lot of guys right now and they just don’t have anything for me right now and that I should go build myself back up with some more wins,” Ryan said.

As for what’s next…

“I don’t know what direction we will go yet. I just started getting back to training. We’ll discuss things at some point and see what opportunities are out there, whether it is the bigger shows like Bellator or the World Series of Fighting – and I don’t know if they have an interest in me – or regional shows,” Ryan said.

“I’m as motivated as I ever was. Fighting is what I love to do.”

So long as Couture has that bank name and the will to fight, there’s gonna be people willing to pay him to fight in the cage. Unfortunately, most of those people will be looking to put their guy over by beating a Couture.

    I’ve always wondered if KJ Noons has regrets for becoming absolutely nobody at boxing and trashing any good will and momentum he had at MMA?

    A question for the ages.

    ^ You’re a cunt. Absolutely no-one cares what you think, no matter which of the multitude of different names you post under here. Fuck off and DIE.

    Doogie Houser is a bully.

    Ryan is good. Just not good enough to be top 15 in the UFC.

  • Doogie Howser, M.D.

    Not a bully, Fricker, although I suppose it is very much in the eye of the beholder.

    I just get fed up of knob-heads like that guy constantly clogging up comments sections posting meaningless, irrelevant, self-centred drivel under a dozen different names and then agreeing with himself in a vain attempt to make himself appear either intelligent and/or popular, when the polar opposite is true. At least when I make myself look like a twat, I do it under my own screen-name.

    It is cunts like him that have helped to kill the sense of community and fun that used to prevail here, which is a terrible shame, and I am just politely asking him and others like him to please vacate the premises and never return. Is that too much to ask?

    ^It’s been pretty entertaining if you ask me. I blame Rebellion Media.

    bro the internet is ur community?
    I feel sorry for you

  • Doogie Howser, M.D.

    Rhymezbullet – you don’t sound too smart, son. Try learning to read what was written.

    Also, you can’t spell or punctuate. Try learning to write, too. I would feel sorry for you but I feel it would be a waste of my time. But thank you for your sympathy … it is nice to know I can touch lives the world over.

    I bear you no real ill-will, Rhymezbullet – the world will take care of you. Something that originated in me taking 5 seconds to tell someone to fuck off because they were being a cunt has rather developed into something much larger. There are better ways that we can all spend time, I’m sure, but I really used to enjoy wasting odd moments here by reading what all the old commenters had to say for themselves and some (like Phoenix, Frickshun, Glassjawsh, CAP occassionally, Letibleu and Butters) were genuinely funny and made me laugh. Those days are seemingly few & far between now and it is that I miss, rather than taking too long to reply to someone who probably won’t read or understand this.

  • rhymezbullet

    The comments section is a shell of what it used to be regarding the posting capabilities. It makes me want to piss on Ryan’s shame chips as that was the best part about this site. Now I am bombarded with site raping ads. I just took a screen shot of the FL home page and it was 75% fucking ads popping out. Even covering half the FL panty shield logo in the header. I’d post it if I could it’s fucking outragous. OUTRAGE.

    I have a desk job so I have to lurk somewhere though but it’s been a love/hate since RM took over.

    Rebellion saved Ryan from Sheba for breakfast & Mighty Dog for dinner so we all have to act grateful.
