Ryan Couture, the son of recently retired UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, is set to face undefeated Matt Ricehouse at Strikeforce Challengers 16 on June 24 in Kent, Wash.

Strikeforce announced Couture's opponent Wednesday as well as the main event featuring Caros Fodor against James Terry.

Couture (2-0) began his professional MMA career at Strikeforce Challengers 10 last August, submitting Lucas Stark with a triangle choke in 75 seconds. His second fight this past February took a little longer, but also resulted in a submission when Couture finished Lee Higgins with a rear-naked choke in the third round.

That's a good opponent for Ryan at this point in his career. I feel like his last name will take him far in this sport but only if he can catch up with it. I would hate to see him be thrown to the lions too early in his career just because of his name. If things go right he could have a VERY successful career when it's all said and done.
