Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Noons 2 Results - Marloes Coenen Wins Women's Welterweight Title With Armbar

For two rounds it appeared that current Strikeforce women's welterweight champion Sarah Kaufman would be able to use strong grappling against the cage to work to a decision win over Marloes Coenen. Kaufman appeared quicker in the striking department and Coenen was trying, unsuccessfully, to counterpunch but was too slow.

In the third round Coenen took Kaufman down but was quickly swept. As Kaufman attempted to open up with strikes Coenen very quickly transitioned to an armbar that forced the champion to tap out and crown a new champion.
