Ok, so it isn’t THAT Couture, but Randy will probably be cornering his wife Kim. According to the female Couture, she will be making her Strikeforce debut on the organization’s second 2009 promotion, which is scheduled for May 16th

Couture confirmed her participation on the event when she was a special guest on HDNet’s Inside MMA. As of now, she has no idea who her opponent might be.

Kim Rose treated Couture like a rag doll in her MMA debut in June of 2008. Not only did the pretty puncher suffer a unanimous decision loss, but she also received a broken jaw and a bloodied up face for her efforts.

In true Couture fashion, Kim rebounded nicely from her loss by TKO’ing Lina Kvokov in the 1stRound of their catfight this past November.

It was announced at last Thursday’s Strikeforce “Shamrock vs. Diaz” presser that May’s event will feature EliteXC middleweight champ Robbie Lawler taking on EliteXC welterweight champion Jake Shields at a catch-weight of 182 pounds.
