Meet Kim Couture, an MMA fighter and wife of UFC heavyweight champ Randy Couture. See photos, video and read a biography of Kim below.
Kim Couture, Randy Couture’s wife, filed a restraining order against Todd Beard, president of Affliction, the clothing line company that houses Randy’s clothing line – Xtreme Couture, which is run by Kim.
TMZ reported that Kim was threatened and intimidated by Beard. She said:
“My fear of Mr. Beard is well-founded given his extensive criminal history. Not only has he been convicted of numerous state and federal felonies relating to fraud …he has engaged in numerous acts of violence, including violence against women.”
A temporary restraining order was granted and Beard is not allowed to go anywhere near Kim, including where Randy will fight this weekend, the MGM Grand (Friday’s weigh-in and the fight on Saturday).
As a biography, Kim Holderman Couture’s age is around 33 or 34 years old. Before she started in the MMA world, she was a casino host in Las Vegas. She worked at the Golden Nugget, Mandalay Bay and the Bellagio.
She met Randy Couture through John Lewis, a former fighter for the UFC who owned a gym in Las Vegas, the same gym where Kim worked out. Lewis threw a party for the folks involved on The Ultimate Fighter show and invited Kim. It was at that party that she met Randy. They talked throughout the night and eventually had lunch together. They married in October 2006.
Kim made her MMA professional debut on June 20th, 2008, in a bout against Kim Rose. She was badly beaten by Rose, and came away from the fight with a broken jaw and nose.
She will make her Strikeforce debut on November 21st, 2008 against Lina Kvokov at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California.
