Couture vs. Vera Set For Strikeforce This November

OK, so the title is misleading. Sherdog is reporting that Kim Couture and Kerry Vera have verbally agreed to face each other in a 135-pound women’s bout for Strikeforce this November. The report notes that both fighter’s camps have confirmed the bout, and contracts will be signed shortly.

The fight between Kim Couture – who was married to UFC Hall Of Famer Randy Couture – and Kerry Vera – married to UFC light heavyweight Brandon Vera – will reportedly take place on November 20th, less than a week after Randy Couture faces Brandon Vera at UFC 105 on November 14th.

Both ladies have only a handful of fights under their belt, as Couture is 1-1, while Vera is 1-0. Couture is coming off of a first round TKO victory over Lina Kvokov at Strikeforce: Destruction last November, while Vera is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Leslie Smith in her debut for Bellator Fighting Championships last May.
