Strikeforce women’s welterweight champion Marloes Coenen isn’t sweating over Liz Carmouche replacing an injured Miesha Tate on short notice.
“It would have been a very good fight … because she’s presenting herself as being a cute girl … and I present myself a different way,” Coenen said. “Let’s put it like that.”
“It wasn’t disappointing because I know I will get a shot at [Tate] again,” Coenen said. “And Liz is very talented. I like it. She’s a good opponent, and her standup is even better than Miesha’s. Props to her.”
“I believe when you’re the champion, you should fight everyone,” she said. “So it doesn’t matter who they put in front of me – I’ll fight them.”
