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.
