Cris Cyborg v Marloes Coenen in Jan in Miami

by Ken Pishna | source:

Marloes Coenen on Saturday night avenged a split decision loss that has been taking a place in the back of her mind for two-and-a-half years. In 1:05, she erased memories of that fight with an armbar submission of Roxanne Modafferi at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Rogers.

It now looks like she’ll get the title shot against Strikeforce 145-pound women’s champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos that was originally scheduled for Fedor vs. Rogers. Santos had to withdraw from the event due to an injury suffered in a grappling tournament in September.

The two are now expected to meet on Jan. 30 in Miami.

I hope so too, and I'm a HUGE fan of Ms. Carano

Coenen is the 3rd female MMA fighter so far that I find attractive.I dont care about her fighting anyone though.

 From what I am hearing I don't think it will happen.  I think Strikeforce spoke too soon around the whole Carano/Cyborg time period.  They said it to get everyone interested, but don't think they really had a plan on how to do it.  IMO they don't need a tourney, just have a belt at 145lbs and 135lbs and have contenders and title fights.  I do have to say that Strikeforce missed the boat by not showing the Coenen/Roxy fight on TV.

 "Nice. Hopefully, women's MMA can begin to gain relevance outside of Ms. Carano."  BEEP!

Looking forward to seeing Cyborg fight again. I hope both Carano and Toughill get back in the mix soon too.

Nice. Hopefully, women's MMA can begin to gain relevance outside of Ms. Carano.Whatever happened to the women's tourney Strikeforce was talking about?
