HDNET FIGHTS TO PRESENT UPCOMING EVENT FEATURING KIM COUTURE
“HDNet Fights Presents: The Debut of Kim Couture” to air exclusively on HDNet – Friday, February 29
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DALLAS (February 11, 2007) – Andrew Simon, CEO of HDNet Fights, announced today that HDNet will feature exclusive coverage of Kim Couture's debut fight. Kim is the wife of MMA legend Randy “The Natural” Couture. Her debut will occur in a Boxing/Muay Thai Smoker, a mixed martial arts event, to be held at the Xtreme Couture Gym in Las Vegas, NV.
“HDNet Fights: The Debut of Kim Couture” will air on HDNet on Friday, February 29 immediately following the network's LIVE IFL event.
The event will feature up to 8 fights – each fight will consist of three two-minute rounds.
“It is great to be able to put business affairs aside the last month and focus exclusively on getting ready for this fight,” said Kim Couture. “The whole Xtreme Couture gym is looking forward to the opportunity to showcase new and up-and-coming athletes.”
“We're looking forward to carrying this event exclusively,” said Andrew Simon, CEO of HDNet Fights. “This event will give fans insight into where it all starts for fighters – earlier in the evening we will broadcast the live IFL event taking place in front of 6,000 fans and then we'll show the contrast by going to the Smoker at Xtreme Couture in front of 300 fans. And, for the many fighters making their debut at the Smoker (including Kim Couture) this is their chance to shine on national TV!”
Kim Couture will also appear as a guest on this Friday's installment of HDNet's “Inside MMA,” hosted by Bas Rutten and Kenny Rice. She will be joined on the program by Randy Couture and MMA fighter, Gina Carano. “Inside MMA” airs Friday, February 15 at 9:30 p.m. ET exclusively on HDNet.
