Zuffa are effectively ruining Women's MMA bit by bit, this is a seriously shitty move, this is people's employment and quest for a meaningful legacy they are playing with! This is the fighters lives! Their WHOLE lives they're messing with!
How exactly was the women's division getting too overcrowded when Strikeforce barely had enough female fighters to sustain the division to begin with? Although there is plenty of competition in the 135 lb division, the 145 lb division hardly has any fighters to keep it going. Strikeforce can't even get Cris Cyborg a decent fight. Strikeforce needs as many female fighters as it can get.
You thought that Zuffa's cutting of Marloes Coenen was a good call, call her a can, and then say it was a shitty move on Zuffa's part?!? That seems contradictable to me. Coenen is one of the top female fighters and a pioneer in the sport. You don't accomplish that as well as win the Strikeforce belt by being a "can". She deserves to be on the card and I enjoy watching her.
