Andrew Simon, CEO of HDNet Fights, announced on Monday that HDNet will feature exclusive coverage of Kim Couture’s debut fight. Kim is the wife of recognized Ultimate Fighting Championship heavyweight titleholder Randy Couture.
Her debut will occur in a Boxing/Muay Thai Smoker to be held at the Xtreme Couture Gym in Las Vegas.
“HDNet Fights: The Debut of Kim Couture” will air on HDNet on Friday, Feb. 29 immediately following the network’s live International Fight League event.
The event will feature up to eight fights – each fight will consist of three two-minute rounds.
“It is great to be able to put business affairs aside the last month and focus exclusively on getting ready for this fight,” said Kim Couture. “The whole Xtreme Couture gym is looking forward to the opportunity to showcase new and up-and-coming athletes.”
“This event will give fans insight into where it all starts for fighters,” said Simon. “Earlier in the evening, we will broadcast the live IFL event taking place in front of 6,000 fans and then we’ll show the contrast by going to the Smoker at Xtreme Couture in front of 300 fans.”
Kim Couture will also appear as a guest on this Friday’s installment of HDNet’s “Inside MMA,” hosted by Bas Rutten and Kenny Rice. She will be joined on the program by Randy Couture and MMA fighter Gina Carano.
