Ryan Couture on following in his father’s footsteps

Ryan Couture, the son of legendary five-time two-weight world champion Randy Couture will be making his professional debut against Lucas Stark on Showtime’s Strikeforce Challengers event this Friday. He recently spoke to Phil Lanides about his upcoming debut and the challenge of following in his father’s footsteps, saying that

“I’d have to be a fool to think coming into this sport that others wouldn’t focus on who my father is. But I accepted that and embrace it. Truly, I couldn’t spend time talking about a better person. I’m pretty sure he would be my favorite fighter even if he wasn’t a blood relative.”
