Analysis for Roxy vs. Coenen II

Posted by koolpaw on November 1, 2009

“lup” a.k.a.mad scientist of kangaroo land has corrected and checked my EngRish as usual. so if this post is unreadble for you, its not my fault, ok? I NO English 100% ok?

updated and fixed EngRish with a help from a professional language teacher.

Analysis for Roxy vs. Coenen II

You can read a brief background of this Roxanne Modafferi vs. Marloes Coenen II at here and here . I don’t predict this rematch but here are several points of “What to watch” in this fight.

First of all, advantages and disadvantages.

a)weight

Roxy is originally a 135er.Fighting at 145 is oversize for her. At the same time, she is good at fighting bigger opponents. She proved it at vs. Coenen I in 2007. Although its still a  risky fight for a person who walks around 130 lbs. On the other hand Marloes Coenen must be walking around at 150-155 lbs. Fighting at 145 looks natural for current MMA. But remember that she has been fighting mostly in Japan which prefers open weight. Roxy doesn’t need to worry about making weight for 145, Coenen has to take that stressful process of dehydrade-rehydrade to fight under MMA unified rules in the north America. Still Coenen will have  the advantage of weight during the fight.

b)The influence of the mental condition of the location

Roxy is an American, she has fought in her country a lot of times. Chicago is not her home town but the USA is her home country. Its is the first time to fight in the States for legendary female MMA star in Japan “Marloes Coenen”. (Actualy she fought in the Abu Dhabi * side note from Roxy) She made weight for replacement on last Aug 15. but didn`t need to fight at that time. Most of things must be the first time for Coenen. Roxy has big advantage in this meeting with her old coach kirik who will corner her as usual, and maybe her friend/rival Tara LaRosa.

c)Short notice of the fight and Changing of the opponent

Roxy got very short notice for this fight like only 1 week b4 the fight day, even if  she is training for potential fight everyday. Coenen was scheduled to fight Cyborg at first, then Toughill. Both got pulled as her opponents and now the replacement is lighter weight but totally different type fighter than original strikers. Coenen also must have difficultiesmaking a new game plan even though she has been willing to avenge her loss against Roxy in 2007.

—-

Their first fight was an open weight / one night tournament “K-Grace”. Everybody thought Marloes Coenen would dominate the tourney. Coenen and her camp might have also thought so. Roxy and her striking coach at that time Kenji Osawa were obviously targeting Coenen only. Winning over Coenen=Winning the tourney. And their game plan and Roxy`s unbelievable guts made big success.

—-

The fight

a)on the feet=striking

Coenen is taller and bigger than Roxy, has a lot of advantages of reach on the feet. On Boxing/Kickboxing demention of MMA, Roxy has to avoid the range that Coenen can throw power strikes. Roxy needs to take Coenen to grappling game  first. But still Coenen has a mealy weapon, vicious knee striking from MuayThai clinch. Roxy and her corner men Kenji Osawa and K-taro Nakamura made good game plan for that at K-Grace. Underhooking Coenen`s arms,pushing Coenen`s chest with fore head. It`s an old and familiar move for Japanese, especially in Sumo wrestling. I believe you can see same move in any kind of wrestling like Greco Roman, Free Style, American Folk Style, Mongolian wrestling or Korean Wrestling. And IT WORKS. Roxy also used the cage to kill the power of Coenen.

“waki o sashi te atama o tsukeru”

ワキをさして頭をつける

We have to watch carefully about the “range” on the feet. Roxy has been training striking. Not only thinking about rematch against Coenen , but also concerned  about Tara LaRosa,Shayna Baszler or the most complete all-rounde  female fighter “Amanda Buckner“, there are new comers like Sarah Kaufman who have heavy hands and crazy cardio to keep throwing punch from quick steps and Katlin Young who has a deadly kick which can finish the fight in a moment at the 135 class. The striking game will be different from Roxy vs. Coenen I in 2007. But still keys on the feet will be

“range” and “clinch”.


b)on the ground=Grappling with Ground and Pound

Overall, the most notable thing about MMA female division is,  its` ground fight. It is said that females are flexible and joints are kinda loose. Looseness of joints does not mean “tough joints”, but its true this factor makes the fights interesting and exciting. We often see unbelievable submission attempts and escaping at female division. You gotta remember  that Roxy and Coenen are both skilful grapplers. It means that we can not blink once they go to the ground.

Most of the top female MMA fighters are good at guard games. Closed guard is not defensive in the female division, especially at top level fighters` bouts. A Typical fighter of this must be  “Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler. Her guard position is the most dangerous trap among all of MMA fighters` aside from Miuguel Torres`s one. Even Roxy got trapped at bodogFIGHT. Keeping the top position doesn’t always mean she is controlling the fight. Most  top female fighters can control opponents and attack from bottom position using their flexibility. Roxy and Coenen are not an exception, or should i say “They are typical dangerous grapplers when they are at the bottom position” ?

Roxy is basically a jujitsu-based fighter, good at positioning.Ground and Pound which she has been training a lot for a while will work with it. Coenen`s fight style on the ground is a bit aggressive, trying to hit sub from any position. It often reminds us of old “Catch wrestling” or SAMBO. I have watched Coenen focusing on GnP in a video on youtube at her fight in 2008.

“Guard position” and “GnP” will be the keys on the ground.

Anyways, This rematch will be a good showcase of female division. I HOPE CBS and Strikeforce will air this fight on Nov. 7th (8th for us  Japanese).

LUP U ZACK !!!  Miss Modafferi who is a professional English teacher fixed my EngRish ! How long have you been chatting over the net with me? ALMOST 10 YEARS now. And you still don`t learn Japanese ! NOT FAIR !!!

But as you have mentioned Roxy also found my tendency of missing plural(?) and articles. I know it`s a general problem of Japanese English learners.

Thanx for fixing my EngRish, Roxy and “LAZY” lup !

She smiled and waved to the cam

Posted by koolpaw on May 17, 2009

Sarah Kaufman  or  Miesha Tate, Who will get the ticket to the top league of female 135 class?

Tate01Miesha walks in to the cage

Sarah02Sarah comes… with big smile

Sarah03Waving to the cam in the cage?? ITS NOT PICNIK !!

Tate04See ! You  got in trouble !!

Sarah05wait… whose blood is that???

Sarah05-5She becomes a punching robot as usual

Tate06O M F G that blood was Meisha`s

Tate08but Meisha doesn`t quit !

Sarah09She smiles again

wavesand… WAVES

So, Non-Stop Punching Robot girl ” Sarah Kaufman” got it, BUT its a ONE-WAY ticket. She can NOt go back anymore.  Shayna is waiting, Not only the Queen of Spade,  She can not pass  Roxy and Amanda to the Top of the moutain where Tara LaRosa is sitting on.

Kaitlin Young the another striker of her Generation will try to stop her. Kailtlin Young who has KOed Tate less than a minute in 2007. Of course Meisha Tate will come back to Stop this unstoppable brizzard.

Strikeforce signed with Tonya Evinger? uh oh

Hot Summer is comming to female 135 division

Posted by koolpaw on May 8, 2009

Undefeated Sarah Kaufamn is going to step in the cage against Miesha Tate, the winner of  US Grappling  (FILA) national trial 2008,  for the right to challenge the Queen of Spade Shayna Baszler.

This is good move of Strikeforce to makeup last mess.  Once bodogFight had built a very tough and serious league of  female division at 135 lbs.  Amanda, Shayna, Akano,  Julie Kedzie, Kelly Kobold  and Roxanne Modafferi. All those tough and skilled fighter were gunning at “the Queen” Tara LaRosa. Just b4 the moment of death of bodogFIGHT, New breed Kaitlin Young was added on the list. Another unknown veteran fighter Sarah Schnider`s name was also spreaded for  Fighting and winning over Young.

Talents and competition were already there, just they lost the place to show their skills.  Why dont major orgs use them for their events? Its often said that “female bout steals the event/show”.

Forget about Godzilla vs. KingKong, its not an athletic competistion. If you realy think of this sport, just focus on other talents who NEVER Cheat, Never Miss the weight. Now Roxanne Modafferi is ready to fight in that tough league as one of TOP 135ers and wants to fight to avenge Shayna badly.

But I think that Kaufman and Tate should be able to relax and take it easy for a while after putting on the exciting fight May 15th. I will gladly face Shayna for them. It’s really no problem at all.

In fact, Shayna chicken winged me in BODOG a few years ago.

I want revenge.

I believe I can win. I don’t want an easy fight…I want a war. Will you go to war with me in the cage, Shayna?

Its also a war between 2 Generations,  current top fighters and future queens like Kaufman, Young and Tate. You know what? There are so many tough competitors at ths Class.  Tonya Evenger,Takayo Hashi, Molly Helsel, Ginele Marquez, Liz Posener,  Jan Finny… the list is looong.

Now the time to re-build the female division.

Wrong, it was just so wrong

Posted by koolpaw on April 22, 2009

Tell the truth, im already sick and tired of those weight issues around those TV stars. This will be the last posting about it.  It seems big MMA site like MMAweekly, MMA mag from UK ” Fighters only” started to focus on that trouble seriously.

And now Tara LaRosa the Queen of Female MMA says ” NO NO NO” with her deep voice. As i know most of current top female fighters already have criticized Cyborg and her  camp for their excuse “Girl Problem” using

ridiculous
Unacceptable

those strong words on forums, SNS, Youtube.  Not only fighters and fans, Dr. Margaret Goodman, a neurologist and former chairman of the Medical Advisory Board of the Nevada State Athletic Commission also said

“its just embarassing”

to have heard the excuse “Girl Problem”.

You really care about future matchup between 2 cheaters? I Dont. If  i want to watch Godzilla vs. KingKong,  i just go to rental DVD shop. Go ahead StrikeXC. Pay them a lot and get higher rating on Showtime or CBS.  I  just dont think its serious combat sport, thats all.

The question is: why no one didnt stop the fight ? Promoter is such a money slave or got blackmailed by Sh0wtime? What Athletic commission was doing? Dont they exist to protect rules and athletes? What the manager was doing? His job is getting a fight for his fighter, let her win and protect her ,  THOSE ARENT HIS JOB?

Kaitlin lost at 2nd(3rd?) Round by ref stoppage !

DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMNN

but i dont blame Kaitlin young. just disapointed to see we will be fooled by those strange ppl for a while AGAIN !!!! :(

undercard was nice but i heard fishy thing about that fat bastard !

EXC President Gary Shaw is irate, screaming at the production crew to get the cage cleared and ready for the final fight of the untelivsed portion of the card. There is only 30-minutes left before they go live on CBS and there is one fight left on the undercard. Chris Liguori and Jim Bova are rushed to the cage.

oh dont ask me the details. i have no idea, what happened. Go and ask it on 5 oz :D

oh btw, Xtreme Couture will claim that the American Gladiator girl is their team again

its the secret that they havent writen about her on their blog for almost one year though.
MONEY and FAME always talk

u know what i mean

DAAAMN

Seems full of booing for today`s event on the Net. Maybe it will be fair to talk about the best fight a bit.

AmaElite may stream replay for undercard which was not on TV . check out Wilson Reis vs. Justin Robbin. u will see beautiful submissions !!! so impressive transitions.

Edit 2:
So surprised to have read even a blogger who is considered as a “hardcore MMA fan” thinks like this about actual weight at fight and weight at weigh-in :o

http://www.mmaopinion.com/2008/05/31/cbs-saturday-night-fights-delivers/
To all those who though Gina Carano couldn’t do it. She did it and she did it in dominating fashion over Kaitlyn Young. Before you start the whole weight argument, you know that 3.5 lbs over (140 + 1) will not win a fight.

do they really think it was just 3-4 lbs difference at the fight?

NEVER trust a Gladiator

Reference: Crazy tesla coiler “lup” loves Airbus A380.

http://www.smarttravelasia.com/AirbusVsBoeing.htm
http://www.airliners.net/aircraft-data/stats.main?id=29

They say A380 is a great Airplane with its` beautiful shape but i gave it a nice nickname to show the respects and friendships for my long time buddy lup who never trys to learn Japanese language.
When he starts to talk about Airbus A380, i just call it “FATTY

She didn t make weight AS USUAL

Gina Carano (144.5) * vs. Kaitlin Young (140.5)

* – New Jersey Deputy Attorney General Nick Lembo told MMAjunkie.com the Gina Carano-Kaitlin Young bout was scheduled to be contested at 140 pounds. Both fighters were aware that Carano would be over weight before the weigh-ins, and a percentage of Carano’s purse was awarded to Young. Lembo was unsure of the amount but believed it to be 12 to 12.5 percent.

Surprise surprise… NOT! Everybody knew she wouldnt. She needs size advantage to win against serious athletes. Same old Trick of this girl and her management office. “No excuse, want to be a pro athlete b4 being a star” ? which mouth said those lies?

NOW we want her blood to make things all straight seriously

WAR KAITLIN

WHOA!!!
what the hell is this “Gregg Doyel” guy talking??? this guy has BRAIN?

Kaitlin isn’t the name of a fighter. Kaitlin is the name of a kindergarten girlie with pigtails, or a baby-sitter with braces. Nobody named Kaitlin can beat Gina Carano, that’s for damn sure. If you wanted better analysis than this, sorry. I can’t get into women fighting. Am I sexist? Perhaps.

Wow even CBS has a brainless writer…

WHHHAT ??
