In his final fight as an amateur, Ryan Couture fought Eddie Bravo student Sean Bollinger for the Tuff-n-Uff 155-pound title in Las Vegas over the weekend. In a wild turn of events he managed to get briefly put to sleep and yet still come back to finish the fight.
At the end of the second round, Couture found himself locked in a triangle choke as the clock ticked down. Watch closely at the 5:55 mark as Couture's arms go limp just after the bell rings to signal the end of the round. Bollinger sees him sleeping on the mat and jumps up to celebrate, thinking it's all over, but Couture quickly comes to and the ref helps him into his corner to prepare for the final round.
The fight ended in a draw after the third, but we have to admit, it may have been one of the most exciting and technical amateur fights we've ever seen.
