Back in high school there was girl on my wrestling team. Her name was Corinna and she was about my weight at the time, so we would pair up during practice. She was actually pretty attractive. I remember her always being pretty tough to pin, although I didn’t mind the extra effort it took to grapple because she generally smelled good and smiled every time you’d slam her into the mat. On a side note, I’ve never had this kind of experience with any other woman since. Today, she’s a Yale grad student, further proving that women are just bound to rule the earth some day.
She’s just one example of a woman who’s just too raw to train with other women. Marloes Coenen and Cyborg Santos both train exclusively with men too. It seems as though training with other women would just be counterproductive to their quest for true rawesomeness. At a recent press conference for their January 30th Bout in Miami, neither fighter revealed much about their training, but both had this to say with regards to their sparing partners:
“For me, I usually train with men because there are not that many good women that do MMA (in the Netherlands)”, said Coenen.
“I only train with men. I usually hurt the women,” said Cyborg
With Marloes training out of Golden Glory in Holland (which is home to pretty much the entire heavyweight K-1 Roster), and Cyborg training out of Chute Boxe in Brazil (birthplace of Wanderlei Silva and Shogun Rua – yes, they were born there), January 30th will easily be the most testosterone driven fight in women’s history, even though both fighters are estrogen-based humanoids.
