Women's MMA can be a strange thing sometimes. It's a mix of some great talents, some inexperienced fighters, an internal conflict of selling sex vs. athleticism and a constant self-evaluation of where the sport is to date.

That's why I've been so fascinated as to what's happened this week following Ronda Rousey's much-discussed victory at Strikeforce Challengers and the subsequent fallout from her post-fight callout of current 135-pound champion Miesha Tate.

In case you missed it, Rousey (4-0) continued her dominant run with a 39-second armbar win over Julia Budd. In four fights, the 24-year-old Rousey has needed just over two minutes combined to garner four armbar submission wins. Following the win over Budd, she said she wanted Tate and would even fight top contender Sarah Kaufman first to prevent anything from messing that up.

This fight doesn't need to happen right now. Even during my interview with Ronda, she said that she completely understands that people like Sarah Kaufman are ahead of her.

When I interviewed Miesha, she said she wanted to avenge her loss to Kaufman. I think that Sarah has earned it before Ronda, but Ronda will likely be next since Coenen has been released from her contract by Strikeforce.

Coenen isn't with Strikeforce/Zuffa anymore, she was cut with the rest of Golden Glory.

She'll have to change camps to get back into the fold.
