Too much too soon for Couture.

Solid fight, May be a bit to soon for Couture though Noons is a seasoned striker with a ton of experience.

Big step up for Couture, I don't think he'll be able to pull this one out but it would huge for his career if he can.

Noons has a lot of mileage. Now might be the right time for Couture to beat him.

I just hope he puts on an impressive performance, so the UFC will bring him in, if not WSOF should sign him, more name value for them, plus Randy will be there when he fights.

I was thinking the same thing. Noons has good takedown defense and quick hands. I see him beating Couture up pretty good on his was to a tko victory

It's really hard not to like Ryan, how can you hate Randy's kid, but I just don't see him ever beating even B-level competition. Noons is going to be pure terror for Ryan on the feet.

Too big a step up
Noons by Ko

The UFC are probably looking to see if he is good enough for them, and KJ Noons is a good bench mark as he is not in the UFC calibre of fighter that can dominate the LW division, . Couture did KO Conor Huen who took KJ to a split decision, that being said it is still a tough fight for him, and KJ is no slouch for up and comers to test themselves against. Maybe Caros Fedor or Justin Wilcox may have been a fairer test ?
