I would like to see Roxanne back at top form as well. Do you think that it is just that there are better wmma fighters coming along? I believe that she is just too small at 135, i mean when you compare her to some of the girls there now, and that 125 cut could be hurting her performances? She is just not strong enough to compete with the top girls at 135.
It's not about strength or better MMA fighters coming along, with the exception of Honchak she's been losing to longtime veterans and as for her strength, she hasn't been getting overpowered to nearly the degree Marloes Coenen did when she cut to 135. The real reason for Roxy's string of losses is July 23, 2010. That's the day she fought Sarah Kaufman and got slam KO'ed, that's what did the trick beyond a doubt. She's just not the same fighter and will she ever be the same fighter again? History say's it's doubtful.
That fight had the same effect on Roxy that Jan Finney's fight with Cyborg had on her. The only differences is that Jan Finney had that so-called ref Kim WInslow and a corner that didn't care one little bit about her health and safety.
