Son Of The Natural

Ryan Couture has signed with Strikeforce. (I just saw this on my Strikeforce feed on FB).

Thoughts?

Well I guess in a way this is good because we know he isnt getting any special treatment from the UFC

The long-anticipated professional debut of Ryan Couture (0-0 MMA, 0-0 SF) is now official.

Following a successful amateur career, Couture will cash his first paycheck following an Aug. 13 bout against Rage in the Cage veteran Lucas Stark (2-4 MMA, 0-0 SF) at Strikeforce Challengers 10.

Couture, of course, is the son of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture and trains with his father's Xtreme Couture camp in Las Vegas.

Strikeforce Challengers 10 takes place Aug. 13 at the Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, Ariz., and airs on Showtime. A 182-pound catchweight bout between veteran Joe Riggs and Louis Taylor headlines the event.

Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker first announced the fight on Tuesday while a guest on "Calling All Sports with Roc and Manuch" on the Arizona-based KDUS-AM 1060.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has since confirmed the matchup with Strikeforce Director of Communications Mike Afromowitz, who said the bout was the first of a multi-fight deal with Couture. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

A lightweight, Couture makes his pro debut at 27 years old. While his father has long been a mainstay in the MMA world, the younger Couture didn't know from day one that he would follow in his father's footsteps.

"I was 200 pounds and lazy and working at a bank," Couture told MMAjunkie.com in 2009. "I was thinking, 'What's my future?' ... I didn't have any idea this would happen."

Nevertheless, Couture has embraced the family business and has rattled off five wins via submission since making his amateur debut.

Anyone know much about his amatuer career? Does he train with Randy? And if so for how long has he trained?

Curious about him now

I'm interested. Is Ryan the first notable second-gen MMA fighter?
