Marloes Coenen believes Ronda Rousey fights with 'fear in her heart' and implies she ducked Cris Cyborg

Number of household items destroyed since I purchased a pair of nunchucks last week: 11. Number of limbs broken since Ronda Rousey has been breaking limbs: 9. Number of fanboy Sherdoggers' hearts broken by Ronda Rousey and Marloes Coenen: 782,096.

When we interviewed Marloes Coenen from Amsterdam, our Skype phone ran out of credit. We rushed to throw some money in the account, but we were idiots. Apparently there is a mandatory 15-minute wait before the Skype account is reactivated. We sat there, smacking our foreheads on the verge of a completely failed interview. When the account was reactivated, we called Marloes back and she apologized to us. By some weird, screwed-up universal coincidence, her phone died seconds after our Skype ran out of credit. It was something you would see off a romantic comedy -- except Marloes doesn't like us in that way. When she met us in Chicago prior to her fight against Roxanne Modafferi back in 2009, she actually patted one of our old interviewers on the head, like a Chia pet.

In this interview with MMAMania, it's unclear if she there was any head patting involved, but it appears that Marloes Coenen has some choice words for Strikeforce bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey.

What it is with Ronda, she's a great judo fighter but what I see with her is the same thing I had in the beginning of my career. I had so much fear in my body that I fought really aggressive and that's the same as with her. Everybody is all "Ohh" and "Ahh" about her and her techniques are really good but I see she's fighting with fear in her heart and she will probably not admit it and won't admit it to herself but I really see the panic.

What Ronda does, if I'm correct she has like 50k followers on Twitter and I don't even have 9000 so she has the attention. People want to know stuff about her, want to follow her and that alone will bring a lot of attention to the game. The same goes for Miesha. They have a lot of followers. I'm a different person. They really work with the sexuality and it's not my thing.

I know I'm a fighter because the first time I fought Cyborg I didn't give up. The referee stopped it and I really wanted to continue and Cyborg said I was the one that hit the hardest out of all of the girls. Ronda, she dropped and volunteered to go down to 135 because she didn't want to face Cyborg and that says something about your mentality.

We're just a couple days away from Marloes Coenen's debut with the all-female promotion, Invicta FC. It's all going to be streamed live on April 28th, so make sure your calendars are cleared and your Palm Pilots are free. Also, if you still have a Palm Pilot then you're definitely on a complex vintage kick that I can't fully comprehend.
