I could stop right there and be finished with this article, but most of you would feel somewhat short-changed. Instead, I’ll tell you guys about the time when I saw Marloes Coenen kicking it in the hotel bar at Crowne Plaza in San Jose just last night. It’s safe to say she wasn’t drinking, but she was having an enormously fun time. Perhaps she knew she would give Sarah Kaufman her first loss in her career and she did it by armbar.
There’s a reason they call her the female Rickson. After tonight, I sincerely hope people realize that Golden Glory is serious. They currently have two champions housed in Strikeforce and are pretty much a lock with someone inside Golden Glory winning the 2010 K-1 GP.
Marloes Coenen derailed Sarah Kaufman tonight and for that, people should be celebrating in the streets that a loss to Coenen is inevitably a win for women’s MMA.
