Ryan Couture made UFC history Saturday when he followed in his dad’s footsteps by fighting inside the Octagon, becoming the only father-son duo to compete for the planet’s premier mixed martial arts promotion. However, unlike with UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, Ryan lost his big league debut.
Ross Pearson (pictured) is the man who rained on the Coutures’ parade.
After dropping the opening five minutes, Pearson brought the heat in the second stanza to post a devastating TKO victory.
On a side note, perhaps the best part of Pearson’s win was that FUEL TV cameras captured the Brit’s lovely lady celebrating in the stands. #KatherineWebbWho
