In Case You Missed It: “Cyborg” Smashes Coenen, Torres Edges Out “Thug” Rose at Invicta FC 6 [VIDEOS]

(Cris Cyborg vs. Marloes Coenen II. Video via FancyMojo420)

As was written so aptly this past weekend on these pages, the women folk on Saturday’s Invicta FC 6 card were some bad mofo’s. Most of the attention was given to the main event title fight (above) rematch between “Cris Cyborg” Santos and Marloes Coenen but we’ve got much love for everyone else on the card as well, especially our very own “Thug” Rose Namajunas.

For the second time in her career, Coenen showed that she can last longer than most women against Santos, but once again, she took a bad beating and a loss at the hands of the “Cyborg.” Namajunas faced the tough Tecia Torres and lost a hard-fought decision that got the main card off to an explosive start.

Both bouts were entertaining and give enough argument on their own that women’s MMA deserves our collective attention. Check out the main event above and Namajunas vs. Torres after the jump and see what we mean.

What an awsome fight! That was close and i could see it going either way but its all what the judges see i spose. Rose was pushing forward and landing more from the feet, but Torres was tough with her ground striking. Nice sponsorship Cage Potato and keep supporting Thug Rose shes a keeper and will keep getting better.

I think Mo said it best:

Haha.. cp knows what's up. These are the only two fights I was interested in seeing. I haven't seen the entire rose fight yet. Nice job with the vids.

No offense to Rose Nut... Ovaryhuggers? But Tecia won the fight, hands down. She took an absolute pounding in the first two rounds with the only offense being three armbar attempts. Although one was close, can't even consider that a winning round. She got tossed and ground and pounded into the mat. Round two was all Torres' striking. Round three was a toss up round, although Rose was on top - the judges are becoming more educated. Tecia landed a nasty upkick that clearly dazed Rose and did the most damage from the bottom - even attempting an armbar of her own. Rose did hold the position advantage, which gave her the round. Overall 29-28 Torres. Rose will learn from this, maybe put on some muscle so she wont be man... womanhandled? by opponents like Tecia.
