After migrating from the defunct Strikeforce to the
UFC, lightweight Ryan Couture (6-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC)
hoped to build a career in the promotion where his
father was a champion and star.

Probably has as much to do with the beef between Randy and Dana as his record

Weird, when Randy signed up to do Bellator's fight master and got on Dana's shit list I just figured Dana would give Ryan easy fights and keep him around the UFC because Dana doesn't seem like a petty person that holds grudges.

I figured he would have been cut after 1 loss. I'm actually surprised it took this long for Dana to cut ties with baby Couture

Not surprised one bit.

Looks like Bellator will be his new home. I cannot see Ryan going anywhere, but Bellator. Expect a deal to happen in the next week or two.

how do you expect him to perform when you ban his more than likely main cornerman from ringside? and pretend like its not gonna fuck with his mindset going into fights.

Exactly. Actually did him a favor by giving him another shot. Was matched tough, but 155lbs is a shark tank anyways.
