Ryan Couture Finds Out His Opponent For Strikeforce Challengers 19

Coming off his first professional defeat, Ryan Couture will look to get back on track when he faces Maka Watson at Strikeforce Challengers 19.

The event takes place September 23 from the Pearl at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas.

Couture, the son of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, suffered a decision loss to Matt Ricehouse earlier this year. Couture is now 2-1.

Watson (4-1) has finished three of his four wins by submission. The lightweight bout will be one of the featured fights on the televised Showtime card.

Lorenz Larkin and Virgil Zwicker meet in the main event at light heavyweight. Lavar Johnson and Shawn Jordan have also been confirmed for the card in a heavyweight bout.
