UFC Quick Quote: Ryan Couture has a good chin, Randy Couture does not

If you lob one to UFC President Dana White, he will "Spike" it.

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

"I think Ryan Couture is a tough kid, man. He took a beating tonight. I like Ryan [Couture], he's lost two in a row, you know, we'll see what happens. He's tough though, man. That kid's got a chin. He didn't get that chin from his old man."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White won't pass up an opportunity to take potshots at former Heavyweight and Light Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture, who left the world's largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion for greener pastures at Viacom, a property which now controls Bellator MMA and a variety of combat sports programming (like this). White was answering questions on son Ryan Couture's losing performance against Al Iaquinta at UFC 164 in Milwaukee (results here) during the post-fight media scrum (video replay here), Iaquinta handed the younger Couture his second-straight loss inside the Octagon, but one that garnered praise for his durability, something White insists was not inherited from "The Natural." Do the six of Randy's 11 losses by way of knockout or technical knockout solidify those claims? Or is White just being a big, fat meanie?
