Congratulations to Miesha Tate for winning the belt. As for Coenen this proves what I have thought all along, she got overpowered by Kaufman, Liz and now Tate. The the cut to 135lbs is brutal for Marloes and it saps her strength. The cut to 135 leaves her without the strength to impose her will, gets her bullied in the clinch, makes her gives up take-downs too easily and forces her to constantly look for subs off her back. That may work for awhile, but sooner or later your luck runs out. Marloes should go back to 145lbs, the cut to 135 takes too much out of her. She may not be a big 145lber but that is where she should be.
Disagree. I don't think it's a conditioning or weight cutting issue. Coenen simply needs to improve her wrestling to compete at the top level.
Meisha was always going to outwrestle Marloes, bad style match up for her.
