Strikeforce releases Roxy :(

Thank you, Strikeforce…..
I just want to fight strong people.
I’m honored to have fought for Strikeforce. I got the chance to fight two top-level women, Marloes Coenen and Sarah Kaufman.
I had been hoping to join the organization for a few years. First, in 2009, I finally got the opportunity to step in as a late replacement for Erin Toughill, who would face Marloes Coenen, who would in turn face Cyborg. I was walking around at 137, but managed to make 140 for the weigh ins. I’d faced Marloes when she was at a heavier weight anyway.
I lost by arm bar. Oops. It was pretty devestating. Even if the fight had gone on longer and I’d gotten arm-barred, I would have been A LITTLE more satisfied….but it was only 62 seconds or something. After being stuck in Japan and waiting for my big chance, I blew it.
But Strikeforce was nice to me. I met A LOT of people. I got Fedor’s autograph! Kirik Jenness, my old trainer, flew in and cornered me.
But a loss is a loss. I had to earn my shot. So after winning my next two matches against the tough Veteran Molly Helsel and my friend Tara Larosa, I was offered a title shot against Sarah Kaufman. It was truly an honor and pleasure to fight her…! until she slammed me on my head.
Thus ending my career at Strikeforce.
On Friday, I got the letter in the mail notifying me of my release.
I’m pretty bummed out…there are still women I want to fight in that organization! But I really had an amazing time. I can’t discount these experiences…they were so valuable for me, and enriched my life. I’ve made a lot of new fans, and met so many people…. it just confirms that being able to fight is one of the best things that’s ever happened to me. Thank you for that, Strikeforce. You have a great organization.
Well, a loss is a loss. Losers don’t get anything. They get the ax. Only winners earn the spotlight. Now I have to BUST my @$$ and hope I’ll have the opportunity to avenge myself against Marloes and Sarah. My life’s goal is to be the number one strongest female fighter in the world, so I gotta do the rubber match with Marloes, and then slam Sarah on HER face. (love you :D) And take Marloes’ arm home with me to Japan in my suitcase. (love you, too!) And there are other women in the world I want to fight!!
Thank you so much, to friends and fans, for all your support!
Dammit I was worried about this after the Kaufman loss, WTF is SF thinking by releasing a high level 135’er. Also where the fuck does SF get the balls to release anybody for that matter. Either way Roxy will be back soon. Please Believe.November 15, 2010 at 3:42 pm #102390

Suxx.November 15, 2010 at 4:45 pm #102403
Yeah crappy but to be expected. Fingers crossed Bellator ends up doing a 135 or 125 women’s tournament after their next season (or maybe a few qualifier fights this season!). Plus I know Roxy was talking about taking her jitz to Aoki levels so in a way, some time off to sharpen her skills to a razor point isn’t a baaaad thing.
So few good promotions doing women’s fights. This is where the WEC folding kinda sucks … that was the only way i could see WMMA get streamed into the UFC any time in the futureNovember 15, 2010 at 7:44 pm #102423
I think it was pretty stupid to cut her…. she was enteraining and skilled to watch … she could have crushed a few cans to get a rematch… strikeforce do it with everyone else, and they aren’t half as skilled … hell, some of them even lose to the cans….November 15, 2010 at 7:58 pm #102426
^Yes but she’s a woman. That’s how SF pimps dare hoes playah, fellsme?November 15, 2010 at 8:27 pm #102429
