"I thought it would become a brawl. The strategy was to get into it. It didn't happen. I don't know why. Maybe she didn't want to exchange punches much. At the start of the third, my trainer told me to give her a straight punch and go for a takedown. I do what he tells me.... Like I said before, winning the world title can be a life-changing thing for me.... Miesha won the tournament, she’s a great grappler and obviously very good. I will definitely have to stand with her. For tonight’s fight, I worked very hard. This is an unbelievable feeling."
-- Newly-crowned Strikeforce 135-pound queenpin, Marloes Coenen, reflects on her big win last night over the previously undefeated Sarah Kaufmann, which she secured with a third round armbar submission. And she's already got her mind set on defending her latest accessory, talking about her keys to victory over her next likely opponent, Meisha Tate. "Takedown" -- who recently won a four-woman, one-night 135-pound elimination tournament earlier this year -- is a fantastic wrestler who can serve up a healthy dose of ground and pound if and when she gets her opponents horizontal. Is this a classic style match up between two of the world's best (and hottest) female fighters on the planet or does one of them have a clear cut advantage inside the cage?
