Mixed martial arts career
Before starting her MMA career, Couture worked as a sheriff's deputy for two years in Colorado and four years as a casino executive in Las Vegas. She got involved with MMA upon looking for a workout routine but did not consider becoming a MMA fighter until Gina Carano joined the Xtreme Couture gym.
Couture made her MMA debut against Kim Rose at Banner Promotions: Night of Combat on June 20, 2008. She suffered a broken jaw in the first round of the fight but continued fighting and was defeated by Unanimous Decision. She was also negotiating a contract with the American Fight League at the time.
Couture faced Rosa Vizcarra at Xtreme Fighters Mexico on March 27, 2010. She won the fight by TKO in the first round.
Couture faced Felicia Wells at AAMMA 5 - Battle Against Breast Cancer on October 2, 2010. She won the fight via reverse arm triangle choke in the second round.
Couture faced Sheila Bird at AX Combat 1 on July 8 at the Calgary Telus Convention Centre in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where she lost by technical submission after what some considered a late stoppage. After the fight hit the mat in the opening round, Bird locked a leg-scissors choke on Couture. The Calgary Combative Sports Commission investigated the stoppage and ruled in favor of the referee. 
Kim was married to former three-time UFC Heavyweight Champion and two-time UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture.Kim and Randy have filed for divorce, with Randy continuing to coach and support Kim's MMA career. She has a son named Oakley from a previous marriage. She also has a daughter named Aspen from a previous relationship.
