Marloes Coenen vs. Cristiane 'Cyborg' title rematch will headline Invicta FC 6

The recently announced championship bout between Marloes Coenen (21-5) and Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos (11-1) will headline Invicta FC 6.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently passed along news of the matchup, which awards the winner Invicta's first-ever featherweight title, on Saturday, and Invicta officials recently confirmed it'll headline the event.

Invicta FC 6 is targeted for a late-June or early-July date. A host city and venue, as well as broadcast/streaming plans, haven't been finalized.

The two fighters first met in January 2010, when Santos defended her Strikeforce featherweight title with a third-round TKO victory over Coenen (21-5), whom she slowly wore down throughout the fight.

At Invicta FC 5 this past weekend, Santos successfully returned from a 16-month drug suspension and layoff, and she dominated late replacement Fiona Muxlow for a first-round knockout. It marked Santos' ninth knockout in 11 career wins.

After her loss to Santos, Coenen went on to win Strikeforce's bantamweight title in her next bout by submitting Sarah Kaufman. That victory is part of the Dutch vet's current 4-1 run, which also included an Invicta FC 1 decision win over Romy Ruyssen and a December submission victory over Muxlow at DREAM.18.

The Santos-Coenen winner will join Michelle Waterson (newly crowned atomweight champion), Carla Esparza (strawweight champ) and Barb Honchak (new flyweight titleholder) as Invicta FC champions.

At the very least she will make Cyborg fight for awhile. This is one of the best fights out there in WMMA at the moment.

Marloes took a beating last time, but made it to the 3rd round, her best chance will be on the ground.

Yeah she made it deep into the fight. One of the few women out there that actually make Cyborg have to fight. I hope she does a little better this time but I have no doubt she will still do better then most.

I think Cyborg has a HUGE chance of pulling this off, if she does, I just hope she does it while clean. No failed tests.

If Cyborg looks like she has previous to the tests this will be as ugly as the first time. If she looks like he did in her first fight she'll still win but not as brutally. Coenen plays all that open guard trying to catch something and her guard just isn't good enough to pull guard and hope for a sub.

Sadly, I think this fight will go similarly to the first.

Everyone forgets this but Carano was getting the better of cyborg on the feet and actually looked strong against her until she got caught at the end of the round, which happens to all strikers. So even cyborg roided isn't an unbeatable beast. She has piss poor striking and leaves her chin out badly. Women just don't seem to deal with the pressure she puts on well. She just swarms and throws until the other girl falls down. Beating cyborg is about disciplined technical striking because no one is out muscling her.

This is a big headliner, I wonder if they will still only cost 10 dollars or if they maybe go to something more expensive.
