LEXINGTON, KY --
"The AFL is still very much interested in signing Kim Couture," said AFL CEO,
"Kim had a tough loss in Las Vegas, but she proved to the world that she's got a fighter's heart," said Santiago. "Despite suffering a broken jaw on the first punch in the first round she fought like a lion and just kept going. The tenacity she displayed in the ring was unbelievable. I've never seen anything like it."
Santiago continued, "With this fight Kim moved out of her husband's shadow to create her own identity as a serious competitor. I already admired Kim, but now I have a whole new level of respect for her as a person. This fight is a testament to the type of athlete she wants to become. With some additional training and experience I believe she will develop into an exceptional fighter."
