Bellator 162’s Ryan Couture: ‘I’m excited to test myself against Goiti Yamouchi on the ground’

MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Bellator 162 lightweight Ryan Couture as he prepares for his upcoming main card bout next Friday night (October 21, 2016) against Goiti Yamouchi at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, Tennessee.

The veteran lightweight is hoping to bounce back from a knockout loss to Patricky Pitbull and he feels Yamouchi will be a great test for his ground game:

“I took a look at the tape and it’s an exciting match-up. I like the way our styles clash. He’s a┬ávery accomplished guy, a┬átalented dude and a hell of a finisher and a grappler. I haven’t fought a guy who’s as willing to grapple as he is in a long time. I’m exciting to test myself against someone who’s so good on the ground.”
