As MMAFighting.com previously reported, Ryan Couture (2-0 MMA, 2-0 SF) is expected to fight on the card, and light heavyweights Lorenz Larkin (10-0 MMA, 1-0 SF) and Gian Villante (7-2 MMA, 0-1 SF) also are slated to match up.

I almost feel bad for Ryan Couture on account of who his father is. The position he is in... I think the target/spotlight on him will only grow now that Randy is retired. It would be a great story for the guy to go on and be champion someday. But will his career be a success (at least as defined by the critics) without getting the championship gold?

I hope that people try to forget about the fact he is the son of "The Natural" and judge his career on it's own merit.
