Ryan Couture Still Wants To Work For UFC
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.20.2013



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Ryan Couture (6-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) said that he still wants to fight for the UFC, even after Dana White had a dispute with his father, Randy Couture, signing a deal with Spike Tv.

Ryan will make his UFC debut at UFC on FUEL TV 8 on April 6 in Sweden against Ross Pearson (14-6 MMA, 6-3 UFC).

On his father not being with him: "I don't think it will have a huge impact. I still have the same guys that I spend the most time with training day in and day out. How we've always worked the corner is depending on what's going on in the fight, that's who's doing most of the talking."

On working in the UFC: "At the end of the day, I know the best place for me and my career is the UFC, so there's no reason I would ever pass up that opportunity. The stuff with Dad is unfortunate, but it's obviously not the first time they've been at odds, and I just want to make sure it's clear to everyone that's involved that that's between them, and it's got nothing to do with me."

On his fighting style: "I think I just have a style, and even the way I talk about the sport, that's going to paint me as an underdog, no matter who I'm matched up against. I come off as the underdog type. It motivates me and helps me put in the hard work at the gym."
