We had reported earlier this week that the scheduled fight between Miesha Tate (7-1) and Kim Couture (1-1) had been cancelled for the Strikeforce Challenger Series debut event on May 15th, and that marital problems may have been the reason for the cancellation. Raw Vegas is reporting that Randy Couture served Kim Couture, his wife of over two years, with divorce papers this week, which would make it divorce number three for “The Natural”. The reports notes that the news was a shock to those close to the couple and even more to Kim, who pulled out of her fight with Tate due to the news.
Sarah Kaufman (8-0) will replace Kim Couture at the ShoMMA: Strikeforce Challengers debut event on May 15th against Miesha Tate. Kaufman last fought last week, defeating Sara Schneider at PFC: Best Of Both Worlds 2.
