  1. This was the fight I was looking forward to most. Whereas other Strikeforce title fights feature B-level fighters, these are likely the best 135 lb women in the world.

    I thought Coenen had a good chance, but it was hard to pick against the undefeated Kaufman.

    Both fighters spent most of the fight trading strikes well and clinching. I thought Coenen slightly edged out Kaufman in the striking, while Kaufman seemed slightly stronger in the clinch.

    When they hit the mat, which Coenen initiated both times, Kaufman showed better wrestling, but Coenen was composed on the bottom and this ultimately made the difference.
