I think Coenen is too pretty/delicate looking for her own good. Refs wanna protect her but she has a ton of heart

^^^^I believe this technique is called the "stink toe", but only when landed on a woman...

 Leg kicks don't win fights.  Just ask Shogun.

gotta have to agree with her.refs need to ask a fighter if they 'want out' in situations like that. it's obvious she wasnt hurt BUT just covering up until the storm was like lawler covering up and moving to avoid the punches from melvin UNTIL the storm passes. should a ref stop the fight when robby was covering up like that? hell no. it's the same thing on the ground. you cover up UNTIL the flurry passes then try to stand or pull guard. doesnt mean she was in trouble and hurt. if a person is just getting punched in the arms the fight should not be stopped.BS stoppage. tho cyborg was ahead on points.

the refs were shitty that night. Not steve mazagati shitty but shitty none the less. Why no Big John? especially for the title fights??coenen is definitely tough and she a lot better than gina did. marloes vs gina would be an awesome womans bout.

This was the good stoppage of the night, she seemed like she finally broke right before the stoppage and stopped fighting back/defending herself.She is tough.
