Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Kim Couture Pre-fight interview
Last time we saw Kim Couture in the ring, things didn't go too well for her. In her fight on June 20, Kim Rose broke her jaw at the start of the fight. Couture hung in well for the remainder of the fight and lost by decision. After making silly excuses for the loss, she admitted in an interview posted on this blog that she wasn't mentally prepared for the fight. She is now cleared to fight and will fight Lina Kvokov on this Friday's Strikeforce show on HDNet. Kvokov is a Russian living in Los Angeles and lost her debut match to Tamara Parks at the Apr. 3 Fatal Femmes Fighting show. Checkout this pre-fight interview that Kim Couture has done with MMA Weekly. She talks about her recovery and training, including a sparring session with Wanderlei Silva. The most interesting info is that the Couture promotion plans to run six shows in 2009. I believe they have run two shows this year. She also said they plan to change the name of the promotion to Xtreme Couture or something similar. She says at the end of the interview that she plans to concentrate more on running the promotion in 2009 and less on fighting. She says she only fights for fun. Of course we all know why Kim Couture gets an inordinate amount of attention for someone who fights for fun. There are plenty of accomplished women fighters who would kill for an opportunity to fight in Strikeforce on HDNet. But I will give Kim one piece of advice. Keep your guard up when you're touching gloves. Enjoy the video.
