Ryan Couture: No Regrets In Handling Of Dana White and Father’s Fued


“I don’t regret the approach we took. I still don’t feel a need to be on anyone’s s— list,” Ryan says with a chuckle.“Besides, with dad’s schedule and how often he has to be out of town, even the country, there’s no guarantee he would have been able to make my fights anyway. So, it might have been a fight for no reason.”

“My manager got a call from Joe Silva who told him that they liked me and the way I did things but that they have a lot of guys right now and they just don’t have anything for me right now and that I should go build myself back up with some more wins. That’s what I expected after losing two fights in a row.”

“I’m disappointed in myself for not performing as well as I could have. I know I can do better.”

Now released by the UFC following two straight losses, the son of UFC hall-of-famer Randy Couture, tells Yahoo Sports his thoughts on his fathers feud with the UFC now that his stint with the promotion is in his rearview.

Ryan Couture entered the UFC on a four-fight winning streak and only one blemish on his pro Mixed Martial Arts record, but he left on a sour note, going winless during his brief two-fight tenure.
