We love Marloes Coenen, and if we were forced to play Marloes Coenen a song from a marginally popular but still influential 80’s punk/surf-rock band to express our feelings to her, boombox lifted above our heads like John Cusack, it would be the Pixies’ La La Love You. You, know – off Doolittle. Our longstanding love for her doesn’t mean we condone such harsh language to come from one of the best female fighters on the planet, but when it really comes down to it we already know Ronda Rousey lacks balls. She’s a girl, I learned about this in fifth grade health class and quick glances at National Geographic. But the words shouldn’t be taken too literal, I guess I’m just overly sensitive with MMA going through a testosterone epidemic these last few years…
PunchDrunkGamer spoke with Marloes about Ronda’s lack of gonads:
She is a great grappler. The way she took out Sarah Kaufmann was amazing and so unexpected to me. But she does lack balls, she judoed at 154lbs, entered Strikeforce at 145lbs and when she had to fight Cris Cyborg she dropped to 135lbs. Using me as an example. Let me tell you this, I fought Cyborg (and will do so in the future again) and then was asked by Strikeforce to drop to 135lbs. Having said all this, career wise it was really smart of her and she deserves a master in PR. She doesn’t care how she gets there, as long as she gets there. And she’s successful at it, looking at the magazine covers like ESPN and changing Dana White’s mind.
I can be quite naive, but I knew what she was doing when I had to fight her. It was my decision to step into the cage with her. So I have to suck it up as well. It’s not me who can decide what should happen. The authorities (whoever that might be) or fans can do that, not me.
You know who does have balls? Wolfman.
