Marloes Coenen vs. Cris Cyborg at Invicta 6


Following a dominant performance at Invicta 5 on Friday vs. Australian fighter Fiona Muxlow, Cris "Cyborg" Santos is now scheduled to fight Marloes Coenen at invicta 6, which is expected to take place in late June or early July. The inaugural Invicat FC featherweight title will be on the line.

The pair fought once before, in  January of 2010, in Cyborg's first defense of her Strikeforce women's 145 pound title.

Coenen next fight was a successful bid for the Strikeforce bantamweight title, vs. Sarah Kaufman. Coenen's last fight a a submission win over Muxlow at DREAM.18.

Friday's fight was Cyborg's first since since December, 2011, when she beat Hiroko Yamanaka. That bout was eventually turned to No Contest following Santos' positive test for Performan Enhancing Drugs, that resulted in a one year suspension.

Invicta FC currently recognizes five weight divisions:
Atomweight 105 lb • Michelle Waterson
Strawweight  115 lb • Carla Esparza
Flyweight 125 lb • Barb Honchak
Bantamweight 135 lb
Featherweight 145 lb • Winner of Santos vs. Coenen

Tito knows promotion. They'll appeal to Ronda's ego and her ego will ultimately lead to her demise. Dana knows not to make Cyborg-Rousey. He knows Cyborg kills the money train as she did the Gina show. Ronda won't be able to just stay away and eventually the fight happens and when it does; Tito Ortiz will be behind the number 1 woman on the planet. It kinda sparks the whole Tito/DFW feud nicely as well. That shirt reminds me of when Tito made everyone wince.

Sonnen did not properly file for a TRT exemption. There is a difference. I'm not a big fan of ANY fighters using PED's, Cyborgs situation pissed me off because she was the #1 female fighter in the world at the time IMO. A real big let down for me. Same with Reem, we all knew he was doing SOMETHING but when he popped it made it a reality.

Looking forward to this fight but I think Marloes would do better at 135.

What PED did Sonnen get popped for?
