Next up is a preview of Marloes Coenen, the woman who will face current champion Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Santos in one of the evenings major bouts.
Though the video does little to inform the viewer of her past record (17-3), with the majority of her wins coming by submission), it instead pulls out it’s trump card by giving fans their first opportunity to see Coenen’s Strikeforce debut from the undercard of the Strikeforce: Fedor Vs Rogers card which has never been aired before.
The fight was a rematch with Roxanne Modafferi, who had surprised many by defeating Coenen in a controversial split-decision. As you’ll see from the brief fight below, Coenen didn’t leave it in the hands of the judges this time round, showing off both her Dutch influenced Muay Thai and submission skills.
