About three years ago, female fighters Cris Cyborg successfully defended her Strikeforce championship title against Marloes Coenen, winning with a TKO in round three. This Saturday, July 13, they will finally have their rematch at Invicta FC 6. This is huge for Invicta, as it will be their first pay-per-view match offered on cable and satellite TV.
This rematch between two pioneers in the world of woman’s MMA will hopefully be less one sided than their last fight, where Cyborg’s strength, aggression, savage striking, and size were too much for Marloes Coenen to overcome. This fight has been highly anticipated for a long time, and the winner will be Invicta’s first 145 pound champ.
