+60kg Female category
As predicted, the powerful MMA fighter from Hollandfs famous Golden Glory gym, Marloes Coenen dominated her first 2 opponents, both former Mundials champions, dispatching them by Armbar and Rear Naked Choke respectively. Her main rival, Monica Vanessa Silva, also made quick work of her match-ups, subbing former Mundials Champion Gjelsten very fast by Guillotine and then submitting Rudfeldt by RNC.
The final was a slightly slower paced affair, with both fighters playing a cautious game which saw them being warned for passivity on several occasions and Coenen winning by -2pts to -3pts.
Hopefully Marloes will have better fortune this time at the World Championships, unsure as to the slamming rules, she asked her corner for clarification and Bas Rutten (for it was he) told her she could slam her opponent who had her in closed guard, which let to her DQ.
