Kim Couture had her head handed to her in a Strikeforce fight against Kerry Vera but she's not giving up and she's added fashion accessories to her game. Couture was in Mexico City to face Rosa Vizcarra. She entered the arena in 'luche libre' style with some sort of kitty mask then took out the claws and beat the snot out of her opponent scoring a first round TKO.

Masks made famous in the U.S. by pro wrestler Mil Mascaras have always been a part of shows in Mexico. Anyone who's crossed back into the States from Tijuana has probably added a mask and little bulldog to their future garage sale inventory. The mask has also become popular over the years in Japan. Most recently it was the masked Kinnikuman facing Bob Sapp.
