The two former Strikeforce champs are set to collide at the next Invicta FC card, targeted for the end of June, or early July according to the organization. The winner is announced to be crowned as Invicta’s first ever featherweight champ. Details as to broadcasting, and venue are yet to be decided.
If you missed Invicta FC 5, you missed Cristiane’s return to glory, earning the technical knocking out over Fiona Muxlow early. You can see the first round massacre here.
Coenen, ironically, was also last seen taking out Muxlow with a first round armbar at Dream 18 in Dec. She will now be looking to earn her third straight win since losing the Strikeforce bantamweight title to Miesha Tate in July of 2011.
