Couture, Alessio Injury Update

                Kim CoutureJohn Alessio

As previously reported at Octagon Buzz, Kim Couture was injured at the “Free for All, A Night of Combat” event that took place last Friday; well it is being reported by MMAWeekly.com that John Alessio, a winner over Pete Spratt the same night, also suffered an injury.  It has been determined that Alessio was injured when he broke his forearm blocking a kick from Spratt and actually used the broken forearm to apply a rear-naked choke on Spratt.  Alessio will have his arm in a cast and his injury is similar to one suffered by Randy Couture back in August 2007.

Meanwhile, Couture suffered a broken jaw; specifically, it was broken in two places – at her chin and close to her right ear.  She will have a titanium plate inserted into her jaw on Wednesday and will be able to eat normally; however, she will be very limited as to her training activities are concerned.  Couture will have to wait a period of time before she can train and will not be able to do any full sparring until around October.  She will be able to perform cardio conditioning, weight training and other types of activities that do not involve her jaw.
