it is easier to win fights at 145 than 135. Ronda completely steamrolled the top ranked 145ers, outside of Marloes and Cyborg, in less than a minute, while she has had some fights at 135 where she was at least tested. It doesn't mean Marloes was really better at 145, just that the competition outside of Cyborg is a lot weaker.

Oh and i love how Carmouche was raw and the division weak.
Carmouche had only 8 months of experience and 11 days notice for the Coenen fight. Only reason she even got the opportunity was because Miesha pulled out with a knee injury.

Don't forget that Coenen got her title shot the same way Rousey did. Strikeforce actually pushed her to go down and let her fight Kaufman despite having no wins at 135. Which Ronda was smart enough to bring up back in 2011 when Miesha balked at Ronda not being deserving...

As Ronda cleverly pointed out, the only reason Miesha was champ was because Marloes got a gift title shot. Sarah Kaufman was right to be pissed by the whole thing. She's only lost twice in her career, and both times it was to 145ers that were encouraged to drop down.
