It was three years ago when Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos and Marloes Coenen met under the Strikeforce banner. The end was Santos getting the third round stoppage. The rematch is now set for later in the month for the inaugural Invicta FC featherweight championship.
Santos returned to sport for Invicta FC following a one year suspension for steroids. During her time away, Strikeforce closed.
Coenen is a veteran of the sport at 21-5. She’s currently riding two wins out of Invicta FC and DREAM.
The rematch headlines Invicta FC 6 on July 13 in the promotion’s first pay-per-view offering. It comes from the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, MO.
Below is an in depth look at the rematch.
