MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with Bellator 135 lightweight Ryan Couture about his upcoming main card fight this Friday night (March 27, 2015) against Dakota Cochrane at the Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma.
The talented son of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture expects a stern test against the former Ultimate Fighter season 15 fighter, but he feels his toughness and conditioning will be key:
“[Dakota Cochrane] comes out aggressive, he comes out hard. He’s gonna be explosive, especially early on. I may have to weather a bit of a storm but I think I can hang tough and be right there in his face pressuring back at him and we’ll find out who’s in better shape and who’s got the stronger will. I think I can outlast him and get him to fade a little bit and then I’ll start to find my openings and be able to pour out my offense more as the fight goes on.”
