I come from a family of collegiate wrestlers. My uncle was an absolute badass at ASU, so were my two older brothers who were All-American D-One. My little brother just wasn't cut out for it. It's not that he was bad but he wasn't as good as my brothers or uncle and didn't have the natural talent to get a scholarship or get to that level. But because my brothers and uncle were so good and garnered so much praise, my little brother felt he was supposed to do the same. I'm just glad no one in my family looked down on him because of it and encouraged his other talents.

I'd tell Ryan what my uncle told my brother. That I'm proud of him, that he did a great job, but that maybe this isn't for you. Some people are just given other gifts and talents.

Ryan started training at only 25 and was a banker or something up until that point. He can live comfortably without getting punched in the face.

I'd tell him to keep at it and that I would lobby to Bellator to sign him when the UFC releases him.

Serisously the guy has a half decent record and has fought in the UFC and Strikeforce if his last name wasn't Couture nobody would think he was a disappointment.

I'd break into a song and dance, this song and dance...



Then I would go get a job at a bank and be the greatest banker of all time!
Well actually I would just tell him to keep training. It's not like you have to be super awesome right away.

The fact is though he is the son of one of the greatest fighters of all time he cant get away from it. Tough break for the kid, especially since he doesn't seem to have the skills to live up to his old man.

Sure, 17 title fights, 5 times champion, hall of fame, fighting this best guys in the world at 46 years old. Based on that he is obviously overrated. Go back and watch the first fight against chuck and tell me again he is overrated.
