Vera stops Couture at Strikeforce Challengers V\


In the evening's co-feature, female striking specialist Karry Vera did what husband Brandon couldn't just one week ago: finish a Couture.

While Couture was able to occasionally utilize her jab, Vera's response to each attack proved overwhelming. Powerful hooks and strong knees found their mark repetitively, and Couture was unable to control the action in the clinch. Vera's speed and pinpoint attack damaged Couture as the match became increasingly one-sided.

Clinched with Couture near the fence, Vera worked free and delivered a final assault that rocked her opponent on a few different occasions. As Couture wilted against the pressure and collapsed to the floor, the bout was mercifully halted at the 3:35 mark.

Vera moves to 2-0 and looks to be a promising contender in Strikeforce's 135-pound division.
