Ryan Couture scored a first round win over Ricky Perez at “Fight Night: Round 1” over the weekend. The fight lasted less then 2 minutes before Ryan was able to submit Perez with a triangle choke. The event was held in Ryan’s old stomping grounds, Bellingham, Wa by the gym he used to train at, West Coast Fight Club.
Ryan was met by his old college friends and his family from Seattle, who all showed up to support Ryan at his first amateur fight. The crowd of more then 1,200 people cheered Ryan on as he secured the win and proved that there are now two Couture men to be feared in the world of MMA. While Ryan hopes to follow in his fathers footsteps, he also wants to forge his own future as a solid competitor in his weight class.
Here is a video of some of the action from Ryan’s fight.
